When a worker experiences a significant injury or illness on the job, a workers’ compensation insurer may be confronted with high expenses for medical care and lost wages. Such incidents can also have a longstanding negative impact on a workers’ compensation insurer’s financial health. If these expenses are not recovered through third-party subrogation, this can negatively impact the insurer’s rating and raise its premium costs. Subrogation is a crucial tool to help workers’ compensation insurers control costs, and for employers to keep their premiums low.
