Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak, recently reported the company, which manages the nation’s largest database of workers compensation insurance information, has filed a request with the Oklahoma Insurance Department to decrease the cost of workers comp insurance in Oklahoma.
According to Doak, the National Council on Compensation Insurance Inc. (NCCI) filed to reduce workers compensation insurance rates in Oklahoma by 1.7 percent starting Jan. 1, 2012. The Commissioner said NCCI attributed the rate drop to this year’s passage of Oklahoma Senate Bill 878. Before the passage of SB 878, rates were expected to increase again. (WCxKit)
Reforming Oklahoma workers comp law was high on Governor Mary Fallin’s agenda, and SB 878 received overwhelming support from both parties in the Legislature.
