Possible 22.8% Rate Increase for California Workers’ Comp

The Workers' Compensation Rating Bureau of California has said that it will recommend a 22.8% increase to workers' compensation premium rates across the state. If approved, the increase will go into effect on January 1.

Rising medical expenses were cited as a reason for the recommendation. However, Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner has said that insurance providers are inefficient in controling costs and that the last recommended increase was unnecessary.
