Workers Compensation Reforms


Workers compensation insurance can help save business owners hundreds or thousands of dollars in the unfortunate event of an employee getting injured while at work. There are possible new California workers compensation reforms that could change how much needs to be paid out for treatment.


The new reforms are based off of the workers compensation trends in 16 different states. The trends could lead to higher prices for office visits and lower prices for surgeries.


Before the workers compensation reforms in 2012, California had the highest legal-medical expenses of 16 states according to a study conducted by the Workers Compensation Research Institute. Medical-legal expenses are expenses that include medical-legal evaluations and reports, independent medical examinations, depositions, and medical expert fees.


The report also found that medical payments per claim in California rose each year between 2006 and 2011before the 2012 reform bill. The bill set up a new fee payment schedule for different workers compensation medical services and service providers. Other states have shown that these changes showed higher costs for office visits and physical medicine, while it decreased the price of surgeries. The Workers Compensation Research Institute found that California had the lowest office visit prices for workers compensations reasons of 25 different states that were studied in 2012.
