Insurance Carrier Claim Reserve Meetings
Your agent or insurance carrier will be wasting your time for renewing the policy. We have found that 60-70% of all Workers Compensation policies renew on January 1st of each year.
That figure matches our client list percentages. We hear from some of our clients that the agent and or carrier have set up a claims review meeting to make sure the reserves are correct for the coming policy year.
The service provided is not being questioned in this article. The timing of the service is what an employer needs to take heed over December claims review meetings if the employer’s policy ends in December.
If your company is in this situation, you may want to cancel the meeting under this circumstance. Your reserves on the loss runs have nothing to do with what your Experience Modification Factor (E-Mod or X-Mod) will be for the coming year. Your E-Mod or X-Mod has very likely been in place for months.
Most Workers Compensation claims peg to your Experience Modification Factor Six Months after policy expiration. This allow the set of claims to develop beyond just the regular policy period. If your policy renews in July or August, a December claims meeting may be fruitful.
Make sure you bring up any questions on reserves in the right claims to cover in your claims meeting.
Feel free to email us with your Workers Compensation policy dates. We will email back the date that your E-Mod or X-Mod has been set in stone. This is a free service. We will charge nothing for it.
