Unemployment consulting services for group rating customers
This service is provided to our Workers’ Compensation Group Rating and Group Retrospective customers only and includes the following telephonic consulting:
- Workers’ compensation claims management
We provide prompt claims investigations to determine compensability, careful evaluation of claims prior to certification, and coordination of legal counsel, hearing representation, private investigations, case management and/or vocational expertise to bring complex cases to timely resolution.
- Group rating program administration
Employers with better than average claim histories can join together through a sponsoring organization and pay a much lower premium. Programs administered by us have produced over $4 billion in savings since group rating was introduced in 1991.
Group retrospective rating program administration Employers with claim costs below a predetermined amount have the opportunity to receive retrospective premium refunds at the end of three evaluation periods. We administer programs for cities, school districts and counties, as well as businesses in various industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, construction, transportation and retail. Participants have earned over $630 million since the program began in 2009.
