These reports can help identify changes over time in the provision of workers’ compensation medical care; detect areas where medical payments per claim, prices, or utilization may be higher or lower compared with other study states for a set of similar claims; and reveal areas where legislative changes or state system features and processes may be impacting the costs or delivery of medical services.
The reports examine how medical payments and care have changed from 2010 to 2015. Claims with experience through 2016 for injuries up to and including 2015 were analyzed.
The 18 states in the study are Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin. There are individual reports for every state except Arkansas and Iowa.
