CA Workers’ Comp Medical Payments Up
Medical payments in workers’ comp in California have been on the rise since 2005. This rise took place shortly after the state reformed its workers’ comp system in 2004.
Between 2005 and 2007, average medical payments in workers’ comp claims rose 23%, going from $2,100 to $2,582. Unfortunately, these increases make insurance companies less and less willing to pay injured workers’ benefits.
