Workers’ Comp for High-Risk Clients: If You Can’t Provide It…

May 4, 2016 | By Kimberly Hayden, Marketing/Relationship Manager, Pride Risk Solutions, Inc.

It can be an arduous task for Agents and Brokers to obtain an affordable workers’ compensation solution for businesses that have gaps in coverage are in high-risk industries and those with high experience modifiers. All to often in these cases, the State Insurance Fund is thought to be the only option and in others the insurer-of-last-resort offers a quote at a premium the client cant afford.

Pride Risk President Ralph Mencia discusses why the ability to provide a lower-cost alternative to the State Fund is a major competitive differentiator for insurance agents in today’s competitive marketplace.

Don’t Let the Competition Get a Foot in the Door

A critical component that assists Agents and Brokers with retaining existing and acquiring new clients is having the ability to provide options in the workers’ comp market. The inability to offer affordable coverage or viable alternatives to the State Insurance Fund creates an opening for the competition.

As a result, you could potentially be at risk of losing their business if this has caused them to shop for coverage or other agents are soliciting them. In addition, if another agent can deliver a cost saving workers’ comp solution you stand to lose the clients other lines of business or the opportunity to write them.
