In recent years, growth in medical payments per claim has been a topic of considerable interest to Wisconsin policymakers and stakeholders. In this 15th edition of the CompScope™ Medical Benchmarks study, we examine medical costs, prices, and utilization in Wisconsin and compare them with 15 other states (Arkansas, California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia). The study covers the time period of 2007 to 2012, with claims' experience up through March 2013. The study also provides findings from other WCRI reports to give the reader a deeper understanding of other aspects of the Wisconsin workers’ compensation system, such as narcotic use, longer-term use of opioids, and ambulatory surgery center (ASC) facility payments.
