The 15th edition of CompScope™ Medical Benchmarks for Massachusetts can help public policy officials and system stakeholders target the main cost drivers and significant performance variances that provide the largest opportunities for improvement in the Massachusetts workers’ compensation system. The study focuses on how various metrics of workers’ compensation medical benefits in Massachusetts have changed over time compared with 15 other states (Arkansas, California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin). The study covers the time period of 2007 to 2012, with experience through March 2013. The study also provides findings from other WCRI reports to give the reader a deeper understanding of other aspects of the Massachusetts workers’ compensation system, such as narcotic use, longer-term use of opioids, and worker outcomes.
