Your Experience Modification Factor (or Experience Mod) is the number one driver of cost in your workers comp program.
The problem is, over 60 percent of Experience Mods are incorrect.
This means 60 percent of businesses are wasting money on insurance premiums that could have instead become profits.
Do you know what your Experience Mod right now?
Do you know how to lower your Experience Mod?
We’re going to fix that today.
5 Reasons Business Owners Can’t Lower Their Experience Mod
Here are five reasons over 65 percent of business owners are being overcharged for their workers compensation insurance…they don’t have control of their Experience Mod.
1) Insurance agents do not explain the Experience Mod to business owners.
Most insurance agents will tell their clients, “Hey, your MOD is what it is.,”
You may be aware you have an Experience Mod, and you may even know what it is, but most business owners don’t understand how it’s calculated.
More importantly, what they can do to lower their Experience Mod beyond just being “Lucky,” and not having injuries.
2) Most insurance agents do not understand how the Experience Mod works.
Frankly, to properly understand the nuance of a worker’s comp Experience Mod, an insurance agent needs to get training.
They need to dive into the insurance policy forms and programs to better understand all the levers impacting an Experience Modification Factor.
We’ve done that work here at Rogue Risk. I personally hold the Certified Workers’ Compensation Advisor designation which has provided our agency in-depth knowledge and skills to deliver superior value on:
- Reducing the Experience Mod
- Managing Employee Injuries
- Acing the Premium Audit
These are just a few of benefits to partners with Rogue Risk. It all begins with a free Experience Mod Audit and Review.
3) The Experience Mod is glossed over.
Your Experience Mod is most often explained as, if you have losses, it goes up. If you don’t have losses, it goes down.
So business owners will say, “Hey, I’ve been lucky. My experience Mod is low or I’ve been unlucky, my experience MOD is high,” which is a travesty.
You have complete control over your Experience Mod as a business owner.
4) Workers’ compensation insurance pays the lowest commissions.
Of all the different types of insurance policies, workers comp pays the some of the lowest commissions to agents. This means workers comp is often an afterthought in terms of driving revenue for insurance agents.
The result is agents spend the least amount of time on your workers compensation when building out your insurance program.
That’s why most agents focus on property insurance. Most agents focus on saving the business owner a thousand bucks and make the max commission when if you dive into your workers’ comp, there might be tens of thousands of dollars in savings right off the rip because of simple misclassification.
Don’t sleep on human nature.
