Idaho Workers’ Comp Rates to Increase Slightly For 2016

October 7, 2015

The Idaho Department of Insurance has received a proposal for an overall rate increase of 0.2 percent to workers’ compensation insurance for 2016 by the National Council on Compensation Insurance.

NCCI collects information about the workers’ compensation system in Idaho and submits proposed rates to the Department of Insurance for review and approval.

“The change in the 2016 workers compensation rates is a reflection of the stability of Idaho’s worker compensation system,” Mike Taylor, NCCI State Relations Executive, said in a statement. “Frequency of lost time claims has remained consistent, and the average indemnity costs of those claims have declined. There has been some increase in medical costs, however the average medical cost per claim is still one of the lowest in the region.”
