FISCAL IMPACT:

      The Department of Insurance states this bill will decrease state general fund revenue by $8,813 in FY 2013 and each year thereafter, and may increase state expenditures by an indeterminable amount in FY 2013 and each year thereafter. There is no fiscal impact on county and local revenue and expenditures.

METHODOLOGY:

    The Insurance Department states this bill repeals the requirement that all insurance companies provide workers’ compensation insurance covering domestics. The Department states this bill will decrease state revenue by $8,813 each year based on the following assumptions:

470,000

B

Percent without Workers’ Compensation Endorsement

50%

C

Premium Tax Percentage

1.25%

D

Average Cost of Coverage

$3.00

 

Total (A*B*C*D)

$8,813

    The Department states there will be domestics who get injured and are not covered by workers’ compensation insurance that may result in additional costs to the State as it relates to lawsuits and medical costs. The Department is not able to project or estimate the increased costs that may result.
