‘Comp’ carriers allowed to increase premiums

The State Corporation Commission has approved premium increases for insurance companies that write workers’ compensation coverage in Virginia.

Allowed increases top 19 percent for one class of coverage for mine workers, according to figures from the SCC.

Workers’ compensation insurance provides medical care and wage replacement benefits to injured workers. Almost all Virginia employers are required to carry the coverage.

The changes become effective in April.
