Average “Pure Premium” Rates
Will Be Cut by 3% . . . from July 1, 2017
Rates for January 1, 2018
In October 2017 The California Insurance Commissioner issued a Decision regarding the WCIRB’s January 1, 2018 Pure Premium Rate Filing.
In his Decision, the Insurance Commissioner approved advisory Pure Premium rates that average $1.94 per $100 of payroll. The average approved Pure Premium rate is 3.0% less than the average of the approved July 1, 2017 advisory Pure Premium rates of $2.00 per $100 of payroll.
Pure Premium rates are used as a basis for insurer who then file individual company rates using the “Pure Premium” rates and add operating and other expenses to set their company rates. Insurer rates as of July 1, 2017 industry averaged $2.34 per $100 of payroll, but of course with over 500 classification codes, rates for any individual employer vary widely.
