Direct and Indirect Costs of Workers Compensation

Workers’ compensation claims have a variety of different costs associated with them. Some of these costs are expected costs, while others are unexpected. Here’s the difference between these terms:

  • Expected costs are those that are covered
    by workers’ compensation insurance. Such
    expenses are commonly referred to as direct
    costs.
  • Unexpected costs are those that workers’
    compensation insurance does not cover.
    These expenses are commonly referred to
    as indirect costs.
