Media Notes:

  • While insurers may use the Commissioner's advisory pure premium rate benchmark, they are not required to follow the recommendation, and may charge rates as they see fit.
  • The purpose of the pure premium benchmark rate process is to review costs in the workers' compensation insurance system and to confirm rates filed by insurance companies are adequate to cover benefits for injured workers.
