Paying too much?

We have found that most Veterinarians are overpaying on their Workers Compensation premium by 22%.  There are a variety of reason for this…

  • incorrect class codes
  • incorrect payrolls
  • working with an agency who doesn’t understand your industry
  • being placed with a carrier that over charges for Vet clinics

In most cases the Veterinary Practices we work with didn’t have a clear understanding of how their workers compensation premium is calculated, what an experience modification is and how that affects the premium prior to working with us.

Your payroll multiplied the rate per $100 of payroll is how the base premium is calculated and in Minnesota every insurance carrier charges a different rate per $100.  Working with a agency that understands your industry is the first step in making sure you are getting the best value for your Work Comp policy.

How do you Know if You Are Paying Too Much?

If your rate of remuneration is more that $1.40 you are paying more that you should for Workers Compensation.  If you are claims free or have lower claims in the last 3 years you shouldn’t pay more that $1.20 per $100 of payroll.
