A factor used in the retrospective rating formula that provides a charge
to cover unallocated claims and the cost of the insurer's claim services. Since
the charge is developed as part of the formula, the amount the insured will
pay for unallocated loss expenses is a function of losses. The loss conversion
factor and the basic premium factor are inversely related to each other; increasing
one decreases the other.
