Loss Costs: What is the Meaning of Loss Costs?

Loss Costs means: Also known as net premium, the actual or projected cost of adjusting the distribution of claims and compensation (ALAE) for the insurance company. The cost of loss does not include overhead or profit. Historical claim costs reflect only the costs and ALAE associated with previous claims. The probable cost of a loss is estimated by estimating future losses based on historical cost trends and developments. Rating organizations such as the Insurance Services Organization, Inc. (ISO) (Automobile Civil Liabilities) and the National Accident Insurance Council (NCCI) (Workers' Compensation) prepare and publish claim rates. Insurance companies add these costs to their costs and benefits to determine the rate. Many insurers charge their rates or deviate from the rates published in the state in which they operate.

The portion of the insurance rate that is used to cover the costs of the claim and the settlement of the claim. Insurers typically set their rates by estimating the cost of their losses and including the provision of expenses, income and expected liabilities.
