Is a Large Deductible Plan Right For Your Client?

Mar 2, 2021

A Workers鈥 Compensation large deductible plan provides the same coverage as a guaranteed insurance plan 鈥 in fact, it is a guaranteed insurance plan with a special deductible endorsement.The deductible size for these plans generally ranges from $100,000 to $1,000,000 per occurrence.

Large deductible plans are not for every company, but some buyers would benefit from this policy approach.Here are a few company characteristics that would make an ideal candidate:

  • Annual Workers鈥 Compensation premiums are in excess of $500,000
  • Account has predictable claims frequency vs. unpredictable claims severity
  • Good Workers鈥 Compensation experience
  • Organizational commitment to workplace safety
  • Solid balance sheet
  • Well-staffed back office
  • An appetite for and understanding of inherent risks

Determining a good fit for a large deductible plan is not about the class of business; rather it is about the company鈥檚 safety culture, financial wellbeing and understanding of the ramifications of taking on risks.When you get into larger accounts, it becomes more of a financial transaction than an insurance transaction.There is a lot of risk on the line 鈥 which is all the more reason to work with a specialized broker that understands these unique risks.

Let鈥檚 review some of the advantages this plan would provide your clients:

  • Significant cash flow advantage over most other programs
  • Increased market capacity for difficult risks
  • Increased incentive to implement loss control programs
  • Increased incentive to implement return to work programs
  • Easy access and exit
  • Possible tax savings
  • Possible Residual Market Load (RML) savings

These are also possible disadvantages to this plan approach:

  • Financial security is required (a letter of credit impacts your company鈥檚 borrowing power)
  • Several years of deductible policies could aggregate collateral to the point that it depletes line of credit availability
  • Unpredictable timing of claims reimbursement
  • Risk of large, unpredictable losses 鈥 particularly if no aggregate deductible applies

If structured and monitored correctly, a large deductible program can give a company greater control, reduced long-term total cost and a significant competitive market advantage over its competitors.However, they must take a calculated risk that their loss control and claims management efforts will meet or exceed their historical loss experience and outperform similar companies in their industry.The expectation is that the insurance premium saved by choosing a higher deductible will exceed the claims cost in a given year.
