Following Last Year’s Rate Hike, Alabama DOI to Hold Hearing on Comp Decrease

October 12, 2021

The Alabama Department of Insurance will hold a hearing Nov. 16 on a proposed, significant decrease in workers’ compensation loss costs and rating values.

A filing by the National Council on Compensation Insurance proposes a 10.5% overall average decrease in voluntary loss costs and 10.5% decrease for the assigned risk market, to take effect March 1, 2022, the department said in a bulletin.

The decrease, if approved by regulators, would follow a 4.4% increase in average voluntary loss costs in 2020, a 3.4% reduction in 2019 and a 6.4% cut in 2018.

The hearing will be held virtually, via internet connection, starting at 10 a.m. Central time. A link will be posted on the insurance department’s website closer to the hearing date. Anyone wishing to submit written comments should send them by Nov. 2 to the department’s chief counsel’s email address,
