CompScope™ Benchmarks for Louisiana, 15th Edition 

Benchmarks study for Louisiana can help policymakers and other stakeholders in the system to identify current cost drivers and emerging trends in indemnity, medical, and expenses. The study compares the performance of the Louisiana workers’ compensation system with 16 other states (Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin). The study focuses on income benefits, costs, overall medical payments, use of benefits, duration of disability, benefit delivery expenses, timeliness of payment, and other metrics. It examines how these system performance metrics have changed from 2008 to 2013 (evaluated in 2014). CompScope™ Benchmarks for Louisiana, 15th Edition. Carol A. Telles. April 2015. WC-15-12.
