For the first time, Georgia is included in the 15th edition of this annual study that benchmarks the performance of state workers’ compensation systems. This study focuses on income benefits, overall medical payments, costs, use of benefits, duration of disability, litigiousness, benefit delivery expenses, timeliness of payment, and other metrics. It compares these metrics in Georgia with 16 other states (Arkansas, California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin) and examines how these system performance metrics have changed over time. This study covers the time period of 2008 to 2013, for claims with experience through March 2014.
