Court Rulings prompt NCCI to seek 19.6% Comp Rate Hike

The National Council on Compensation Insurance Inc. has proposed a nearly 20% workers compensation rate increase in Florida to cover the projected impact of recent state Supreme Court rulings and a new health care provider reimbursement manual, the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation said.

Employers have been bracing for skyrocketing workers comp rates since the Florida Supreme Court issued decisions in Marvin Castellanos v. Next Door Co. et al. and Bradley Westphal v. City of St. Petersburg et al., which deemed the state's attorney fee schedule and temporary total disability provision unconstitutional, respectively.
