Workers’ compensation is designed to protect injured workers from on the job accidents or injury.  Workers’ compensation also protects employers from large medical bills and time-loss claims.  This kind of insurance is an important part of your business insurance program.  The risk climate has changed, and will continue to change, and it is important that workers’ compensation keep up.

Ways Workers’ Compensation is Changing

  • With all the changes in healthcare, workers’ compensation will most likely be integrated in some way with health insurance.
  • Will the Federal Government take over workers’ compensation like they did with healthcare? There could be new fines for employers who fail to provide coverage to injured workers.
  • How will illegal workers be treated in the future? Most states do allow for illegal workers to be covered under workers’ compensation, but will that continue?
  • As medical providers merge, it is going to lead to increased costs.
  • Will self-insurance or group plans be more attractive to employers in the future?
