AUSTIN, TX – The Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation (TDI-DWC) is offering a new interactive online report containing workers’ compensation system data. The TDI-DWC System Data Report and associated online tools allow users to create customized graphics from the data and download the results into a PDF file for future use. The report contains workers’ compensation claims data regarding income and death benefits, dispute resolution, medical fee disputes, designated doctor appointments and medical benefits.
“We are pleased to provide information in an interactive format that allows system participants to more easily access aggregate claims information,” said Rod Bordelon, Commissioner of Workers’ Compensation. The new, improved System Data Report is similar in content to the System Data Report last published in June 2005, and contains information from calendar year January 2006 to December 2010; updated through June 2010. The new online report will eliminate the need for workers’ compensation system participants to submit open records requests for this information, although that service is still available for other data requests.
The report is available for free on the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) website at http://www.tdi.texas.gov/wc/data.html and is provided in HTML and PDF formats. The TDI-DWC will update the report twice each year.
