Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the debut of a new series of reports from CWCI that use subsets of the institute’s data to measure and analyze various aspects of claims experience within eight regions of the state.
The Regional Score Cards reports will profile claimant characteristics and highlight data compiled from claims filed by residents of the region. The first in the series focuses on accident year 2005 – 2015 claims for Los Angeles County residents, who accounted for almost a quarter of the claims in the state, but nearly a third of all paid losses. Notable findings included a pattern of lower than average first-year payments on Los Angeles claims, followed by higher losses as the claims aged, which tracked with longer delays in reporting, delays in initial treatment, and a higher prevalence of cumulative trauma and non-specific injury claims in LA County.
