CompScope™ Benchmarks for Minnesota, 15th Edition

By Sharon E. Belton

April 1, 2015 Related Topics: Indemnity Benefits, Medical Costs, Annual State CompScope™ Benchmarks

This 15th edition of the CompScope™ Benchmarks 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 over time and how Minnesota compares with 16 other states (Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin). This study covers the time period of 2008 to 2013, for claims with experience through March 2014. This encompasses a time period just prior to the implementation of several reforms enacted in Minnesota in May 2013 and provides a baseline for monitoring the potential impact of these reforms going forward (S.F. 1234; 2013 Minn. Laws, Ch. 70).
