CWCI Reports On Medical Development Trends In CA WC


Oakland, CA - The California Workers' Compensation Institute published a report that updates and expands on the prior studies by using data on California claims experience through June 2009. The results confirm the findings of the earlier studies, again noting significant decreases in medical payments immediately after the implementation of SB 899 in 2004, followed by a distinct trend of increasing medical expenditures associated with work injuries beginning with AY 2006 claims through the end of the study period. As a result, average paid medical costs per claim are now significantly higher than they were before the implementation of the 2003-2004 reforms.
