WorkCompRecap: Score Cards & Surveillance!

Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap offers you a break from Cyber Monday shopping to feature CWCI’s recent release of its second Regional Score Card, which examines claims filed by workers from San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange and Imperial Counties for job injuries that occurred between 2005 and 2015.

Key findings in the report card included that the region accounted for 19% of California job injury claims, but average medical and indemnity payments on the claims were among the highest in the state, so they accounted for 21% of total paid benefits. Since AY 2005, average benefit payments on Inland Empire/Orange County claims have exceeded those in other parts of the state, whether measured at 12, 24, or 36 months post injury, with the biggest reason being medical payments, which averaged as much as 19% higher at 36 months, though indemnity payments also averaged as much as 10.9% higher at the 3-year benchmark.
