Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the big kickoff of the National Workers’ Compensation & Disability Conference here in Fabulous Las Vegas! We’re looking forward to a great show!
In the news today is the TDI-DWC’s recent release of its biennial report on the state’s workers’ comp system. Key findings from the report included that network participation and treatment have increased, with about 50% of new claims treated in networks compared to 20% in 2010. Surveys of injured workers also showed a higher proportion reporting no problems getting the care they needed when compared with pre-reform 2005. Care was provided faster as well, however care satisfaction levels in the survey were slightly lower.
