Report: Medical Facility Services Largest Driver of Comp Cost Increases


Workers’ compensation medical facility payments grew across all facility types and all U.S. regions during the past decade, with facilities costs constituting the largest driver of overall comp cost changes, according to a report released Wednesday by the National Council on Compensation Insurance.


Nationwide, facility costs made up about 40% of all comp costs and increased by about 3% per year on average during the past 10 years, Boca Raton, Florida-based NCCI said.


The report is the second in a planned four-part series examining the impact of macroeconomic factors such as inflation on overall comp medical costs. The new research shows that costs per workers’ comp claim paid to medical facilities grew 3.3% annually over the past decade.
