In this 15th edition of the CompScope™ Medical Benchmarks study, we examine medical costs, prices, and utilization in Texas and compare them with 15 other states (Arkansas, California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin). The study covers the period of 2007 to 2012, with claims' experience through March 2013. The study also examines how these metrics of medical costs and care have changed following the Texas reforms, particularly House Bill (HB) 7 in 2005. Findings from other WCRI reports are provided to give the reader a deeper understanding of other aspects of the Texas workers’ compensation system, such as ambulatory surgery center (ASC) facility payments.
