This study helps Virginia policymakers and other stakeholders in the workers’ compensation system to identify cost drivers and emerging trends in payments for care provided to workers with work-related injuries.

In this report, we examine medical payments, and other measures capturing prices, and utilization of medical care in Virginia and compare them with 16 other states. We also examine how these metrics have changed, mainly from 2016 to 2021 (with experience through 2022). In some cases, we use a longer time frame to supply historical context for key metrics.

The report continues to monitor the performance of Virginia’s workers’ compensation system in the four years after the medical fee schedule was implemented on January 1, 2018.
