Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the release of the ninth edition of WCRI’s free Medical Price Index for Workers’ Compensation (MPI-WC), which is focused on providing stakeholders with a tool for monitoring changes in prices paid for medical professional services for injured workers in different states as well as the impact of fee schedule and network changes on price trends.
The Index tracks medical prices paid in 31 states from 2008 to 2016 for professional services billed by physicians, physical therapists, and chiropractors. Services fall into eight groups: evaluation and management, physical medicine, surgery, major radiology, minor radiology, neurological testing, pain management injections, and emergency care. New in this edition is a discussion of the impact of recent fee schedule changes on prices in North Carolina and Colorado between 2015 and 2016.
