WorkCompRecap: New WCRI Report!

Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the release of the 14th Edition of WCRI’s CompScope Medical Benchmarks report, which looks at 16 different states’ workers’ comp systems and provides a baseline of current medical costs by documenting how medical payments per claim and their cost components compare with other states.

Examples of key findings from the reports included higher payments per claim in Indiana, driven by higher prices and inpatient payments, and higher average medical payments per claim in Louisiana, due largely to much higher hospital outpatient payments per claim, which also contributed to the rapid growth rate. Alongside medical care cost drivers, the report also examines the effects of legislative and regulatory changes on medical costs, and trends in payments, prices and utilization.
