Retro Refunds Coming Soon

It’s that time of year again.  On April 1st, 2022, L&I took financial snapshots of all claims occurring in the 3 most recent Retro Plan years for LeadingAge WA’s Group Retro Program.  At the end of April, L&I will complete their adjustment and send final results to LeadingAge WA.  LeadingAge WA will then begin the process to disperse refunds.

Leading Age WA’s Retro Plan year is the 12-month period from 7/1-6/30.  9 months after a coverage period ends, L&I takes their financial snapshot and compares the overall claim costs to the overall standard premium paid by all members.  When the total claim costs are lower than the total premium paid, refunds are earned.   

Each Retro Plan year is adjusted 3 times.  This year 2018/2019, 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 are being adjusted.  Based on your hard work and diligence in keeping your injured employees safe and working, Leading Age WA results are looking very good for the 2020/2021 Retro Plan year.

To continue with this upward swing, please remember the importance of KOS and having a light duty position or transitional work options available for your employees. Ensure the light duty is provider approved and the injured employee signs a light duty job offer. This reduces disability conviction and allows Risk Finance to request your Stay at Work reimbursement.

As always, if you have any questions, please reach out to your assigned Claims Consultant with Risk Finance.  Keep up the great work everyone, see you in June!
