This 16th edition CompScope™ report benchmarks the performance of the New Jersey workers’ compensation system as compared to 17 other states. The study focuses on income benefits, overall medical payments, costs, use of benefits, duration of temporary disability, litigiousness, benefit delivery expenses, timeliness of first indemnity payment, and other metrics. It examines how these system performance metrics have changed primarily from 2009 to 2014. We analyzed claims with experience through 2015 for injuries up to and including 2014. In some cases, we used a longer time frame to supply a historical context for key metrics.
