The NCCI has received numerous questions in the last few weeks regarding COVID-19 and the impact it may have on the workers compensation industry.
These frequently asked questions (FAQs) are intended to be the start of a series of responses that will address questions NCCI receives. Please review NCCI’s Basic Manual for Workers Compensation and Employers Liability Insurance—2001 Edition (Basic Manual) and Statistical Plan for Workers Compensation and Employers Liability Insurance—2008 Edition for additional information applicable to the responses provided. In addition, some states may have exceptions to the national Basic Manual rules referenced in this article. Refer to the State Rule Exceptions section of NCCI’s Basic Manual to determine whether an exception exists.
These FAQs address the rules as filed in NCCI manuals and other potential issues related to NCCI’s role in the industry. Individual states approve, interpret, and enforce the rules contained in manuals and forms. Insurance carriers will need to confirm regulatory, legislative, and enforcement changes as a result of the COVID-19 event with the respective states.
