This 16th edition of CompScope™ Benchmarks for Massachusetts can help policymakers and other system stakeholders identify current cost drivers and emerging trends for a wide variety of workers’ compensation cost measures such as indemnity benefits, duration of temporary disability, lump-sum settlements, medical payments, and benefit delivery expenses. It also shows total costs per claim and their components in Massachusetts compared with 17 other study states.
The study compares costs per claim for Massachusetts with those in other study states and identifies possible factors that affect the Massachusetts results on those metrics. We also look at changes in key cost components in Massachusetts from 2009 to 2014 (evaluated as of 2015) to show recent and emerging trends. In some cases, we used a longer time frame to supply a historical context for key metrics. We included information from other WCRI benchmarking studies to provide a more complete picture of the system in Massachusetts.
