Fiscal Note
The per claim fees included in the proposed contract for 2015 are approximately 3% above the 2014 rates included in the current contract for 2014, with 3% annual inflationary adjustments for 2016 and 2017. Two optional years are included for 2018 and 2019 with respective rate increases at 3% for each year. The total cost of third party workers compensation administrative services is dependent upon the actual number of claims incurred and reported. $175,000 is available in the 2015 Workers Compensation Fund budget for these services, sufficient to fund anticipated costs based on anticipated claims experience.
