Cambridge, MA – The Workers Compensation Research Institute (WCRI) recently announced a new free webinar where authors Olesya Fomenko and Rebecca Yang discuss findings and answer questions from Insights into Medical Inflation in Workers’ Compensation—A WCRI FlashReport.
“The steep growth in consumer prices for energy, food, and housing over the last few years created concerns about potential rising inflation in medical care,” said WCRI CEO Ramona Tanabe. “The study examines to what extent the recent sizable price growth for all goods and services spread to the health care sector in general and to workers’ compensation in particular.”
The webinar will address the following questions:
- To what extent did the recent sizable price growth spread to the health care sector in general and to workers’ compensation in particular?
- What are the trends in workers’ compensation medical payments per claim over the past decade? What are the main drivers of medical cost growth in workers’ compensation?
- Is there evidence of medical inflation for the major types of workers’ compensation providers over the past decade?
- What is the impact of workers’ compensation reimbursement regulations on containing growth in workers’ compensation prices and payments?
The 30-min. webinar is free and is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2023, at 2:00 pm ET.
Attendance is limited to 500 people and all attendees receive a free copy of the slides.
