In this study, we examine medical payments, prices, and utilization in New Jersey compared with 16 other states (Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin). The study also examines how these metrics of medical costs and care have changed primarily from 2008 to 2013 for claims at 12 months of experience. We found that New Jersey medical payments per claim changed little from 2010 to 2013, in contrast to growth of nearly 10 percent per year from 2008 to 2010. We analyzed claims with experience through 2014 for injuries up to and including 2013. In some cases, we used a longer time frame to supply historical context for key metrics.
