Claims management and hearing representation - We go beyond simple claims management to provide a consultative approach to strategies that will ensure compliance while improving efficiencies, outcomes and overall results.

Lower rates - Understanding your experience modifier (EM) is key in reducing your workers’ compensation costs and measuring how your loss prevention and cost control practices stack up against the state average, as well as others in the industry.

Our clients average an experience modifier of .64 percent (36% below base) as opposed to the industry average of 12% below base. This 24 percent difference has a direct impact on your premium.
