PIE Insurance Coverage
Does PIE Insurance have good insurance coverage?
Well, since PIE focuses on workers' comp, which is a fairly standardized coverage in most states in the United States, the coverage itself is going to be very similar to what you get from other carriers.
When it comes to workers' comp insurance in particular, what you're looking for is:
- How is the audit process?
- What is their pricing?
- How do they handle claims and the claims process?
The answers to these three questions are the most important by far when evaluating worker's compensation insurance carriers.
PIE Insurance Workers Comp Audits
What is the PIE worker's comp audit process like?
I will say that PIE's audit process is fairly standard. I won't say that they're overly rigorous. I won't say that they're too loosey-goosey. I'd say they're right down the middle. It is a fairly standard audit process.
You're not going to feel like you're being bludgeoned for information. At the same time, it's not the most easy audit process either, but I think that's actually a good thing, because you don't ever want to get into a situation where, because the audit process was too loose, you're mis-rating yourself or mis-accounting for payroll.
That catches up to you in the future at some point, and you get a big audit bill. You don't want that. So I think it's a fairly standard audit process and you're perfectly find in that standpoint.
PIE Insurance Worker's Comp Pricing
How is PIE Insurance on worker's comp pricing?
I think their pricing is pretty good. Again, pricing for workers' compensation is very state-to-state specific. Today I looked at our stats before we did this blog post and we have the most PIE Insurance policies in New York State right now. In that New York, I'd say PIE is fairly competitive. Up and down the East Coast, very competitive pricing.
What makes PIE particularly interesting to us at Rogue Risk and the customers that we place PIE with is that they are willing to write a lot of contracting classes that other carriers are unwilling to take a look at.
They're willing to write new businesses, which a lot of carriers don't want to write new businesses at all.
And PIE will write a new business and give a new business owner a shot, or someone who's hiring an employee for the first time, a shot. And that means a lot culturally to us here at Rogue Risk, since we work with a lot of startup business owners.
PIE Insurance Claims Handling
The PIE Insurance claims process to very standard. We've never had a problem. We've never had a complaint with a claim when it comes to PIE Insurance.
They do use third-party adjusters, which a lot of carriers do these days
I don't think that's an issue in particularly.
So all in all, I give PIE a great rating.
I think you're perfectly fine working with PIE as an insurance carrier. I do think you should work through them with a insurance broker, like our team here at Rogue Risk.
I don't think that you should go direct. And the reason for that is if you go direct, essentially what you're saying is that you are going to act as the insurance agent and you now become responsible for all those decisions and understanding policy forms and understanding policy language and how all that works.
You're most likely not a licensed insurance agent, which is fine. Find someone you trust. Find someone who's going to talk you through the process, help you better understand why PIE might be a good fit, or why there may be another carrier.
But as far as our review of PIE Insurance, we think they're a top-quality carrier who is growing in this space and that you should feel perfectly comfortable having them as your insurance carrier.
