While your Agent has no control over the premiums set by the companies, we can work with you to identify if any of these options make sense for you: 1) Higher deductibles mean lower premiums. While that means you would be responsible for more of the cost of a loss, it would decrease your premium and allow you to save money for those unforeseen circumstances. 2) Make sure you are taking advantage of all the discounts available on your policy by talking with your Account Manager about what may be available to you. 3) If you are a business paying over $5,000 for Workers Compensation insurance, you should make sure your Experience Modification Factor is correct.

Employers in Massachusetts with 10 or more Full Time Equivalent (FTE) employees are required to meet certain participation and contribution requirements, as reported in a Fair Share Contributions (FSC) Report filed online with the DUA. If the minimum criteria are not met, the employer must pay a surcharge based on the total number of FTE employees. Federal health care reform will require employers with 50 or more FTE employees to pay a much higher surcharge if they do not offer minimally acceptable insurance to their employees starting in 2014. At this time, the state of Massachusetts has not determined whether a business will be subject to both state and federal requirements and surcharges.
