Experience rating

A technique insurance companies use to determine the correct price of a policy premium.

Experience Rating

In insurance, a calculation of a policy's premium based on the likelihood of a claim on that policy. This calculation takes into account the policyholder's history of past claims with the aim of discouraging dangerous activities that would lead to a claim. For instance, a policyholder with a history of claims due to work-related injuries will likely pay higher premiums because of his/her experience rating than a policyholder with no such history. Indeed, an experience rating showing few or no claims can lead to discounts on premiums.
