WorkCompRecap: Slower but Faster!

Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features WCRI’s release of the Wisconsin edition of its CompScope Medical Benchmarks, which found that medical payments per claim were higher than typical for 2015 injuries evaluated as of March 2016, and although growth in medical payments per claim has slowed in the past several years, medical payments were still increasing at a faster rate than other study states.

WCRI noted that in 2015, medical payments per claim with more than seven days of lost time were 61% higher than the median study state; medical payments per all paid claims were 46% higher. Substantially higher prices paid for nonhospital medical services were a factor contributing to higher average medical payments, and utilization of nonhospital medical services in Wisconsin was among the lowest of the study states.
