2017 is well underway. What’s in the works for worker's comp insurance this year?

Keep an Eye Out for These Changing Worker's Comp Insurance Issues

The New Administration
Former President Obama was headed toward federal reforms including minimum state benefit standards. President Trump, however, is a vocal opponent of federal regulations, leaving this issue on hold.

Healthcare Reform
Healthcare reform has the potential to affect benefit requirements, quality of care, the calculation of premiums, and claims filings — if and when anything passes. Stay tuned...

OSHA
More recently, OSHA had shifted resources from education to enforcement.
With a successor yet to be named by the Trump Administration a new direction is expected, but like healthcare reform the path remains unclear.

ADA/FMLA
The broadening of regulations and enforcement increased under the Obama Administration are expected to relax, with the federal government less likely to expand the boundaries of existing ADA/FMLA laws.

Workcomp Rates & Premiums
More driven by changes in market competition than changes in exposures, the previous hyper-competitive marketplace is expected to slow as new entrants respond to long-tail losses hitting the books.

Long-Tail Exposures
Long-tail exposures, premiums collected today for tomorrow’s losses, will require close scrutiny in the coming years. What could inflate your costs? Raised life expectancies, costlier new drugs and treatments, medical science advancement in prosthetics, and more.

Opioids
In 2017, there’s expected to be continued emphasis on alternatives to opioids for acute and chronic pain, with expanding coverage.
