Our Work Comp Solutions Program

Experience Modification
An experience mod is a single number that reflects past workers' compensation losses and is used to predict future workers' compensation losses. As many as 50% of experience mods contain errors and more than 80% are mismanaged. Incorrect payroll figures, incorrect class codes, mismanaged claims leading to inaccurate information being reported to the rating bureau and improper application of credits are all common errors. Let our agents help your business implement some simple strategies that will allow you to control your experience mod.

Also, very few employers know their minimum experience mod. Driving your experience mod down to the minimum is the most profitable way to control your work comp costs. The minimum mod factor is an essential part of your financial health and Knapp Tedesco Insurance has solutions in place to help you achieve it.

Claims Management And Return To Work
While preventing work comp claims from happening in the first place is ideal, proper management of existing claims can have a big impact on your experience mod. Our Work Comp Solutions Program offers a simple 3-step process to manage work comp claims; before the claim, during the claim and after the claim.

There are many benefits of managing claims and the return to work process; fewer benefits are paid out, claim reserves are lower, expedites claim closure, fraudulent claims are reduced, litigation is reduced, and productivity is maintained. All of these lead to reduced work comp premiums and improved experience mods.

Injury Prevention and Safety
The process of injury prevention begins long before an employee injury occurs. By implementing some simple pre-employment steps gives your business the peace of mind knowing your employee is physically and mentally able to perform all the essential functions of the job.

Having a thorough safety plan in place makes it clear to employees that you have a serious attitude toward safety. A solid safety plan can also be used to defend company policies and procedures.

Access to our carrier Loss Control Specialist will provide loss prevention recommendations to reduce the frequency and severity of losses.
