7.7% Workers’ Comp Decrease Recommended in Missouri

Friday, Nov. 26th 2021

If you have suffered a work-related injury or illness, Northland Injury Law can help ensure you receive full and fair compensation under the law. With years of experience, we can help with even the most complicated claims.


The Missouri Department of Commerce and Insurance is recommending a 7.7 percent decrease in workers’ compensation insurance loss costs for 2022. This marks the largest overall decrease since 2009.

“Recommended loss costs are decreasing significantly for 2022, due to the continued decline in loss-time claim frequency as a result of safer work places and improved risk management,” said Department of Commerce and Insurance Director Chlora Lindley-Myers. “In addition, for the first time since 2013, there has been a decrease in the average medical cost per lost-time claim. The Missouri Workers Compensation Insurance Market remains robust and competitive with 371 carriers currently offering coverage within the state.”

Prospective loss costs are intended to cover indemnity and medical payments for injured workers and other expenses incurred for providing such benefits. Loss costs are used by insurers to set workers’ compensation insurance rates. Every year, the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI), files advisory loss costs. The department reviews the NCCI’s methodology and assumptions and develops its own recommended loss costs.

Under Missouri law, insurers may set their rates based on the NCCI’s recommendations, the department’s recommendations, or their own actuarial analysis. Insurers are not required to change their rates in 2022, regardless of the recommendations made.

Both the NCCI and the department propose an overall loss cost decrease of 7.7 percent for policies effective Jan. 1, 2022.

When it comes to a lawsuit after an accident or injury, representation matters! Most people do not realize that insurance companies have teams of lawyers, investigators, photographers and defense experts who immediately go to work following a serious accident involving their insureds.  They hire these people to minimize their exposure throughout the claims process and to reduce the amount received by the victim. Northland Injury Law aims to level the playing field for their clients.

This is an excellent law firm. They helped me out after an accident and did an awesome job. I would recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a good lawyer.” – Toni B.
