«Coventry result-doing quite well |Main | Comp Conference … » What is driving the cost of California’s comp
I have the honour to have the European marine casualty actuarial Society annual CWCI fills in this morning’s Alex Swedlow with co-presenting. Alex shared CWCI: the latest research findings on California’s work comp system and, in particular, the impact of the directives set out in annex II under the influence.
Some of the News was rather frightening and some encouraging.
For example, the drug from the dollar decreased by 95% after the repackaged drugs based on a percentage of the loophole was closed at the beginning of the year 2007.Repacks cost two to four times more than the purchased retail pharmacy, so this was good news as a matter of fact, the number of the payer of the same script.
Sticking with the positive: n analysis mentioned CWCI reforms, according to the system costs drove to don 13-25 billion dollars in the years 2005 to 2008. costs is unfortunately once again normally their rising, in part, that the mileage pharma now accounts for 13% of the work comp medical costs in California.
In particular, the effective list of narcotic drugs used in the dollar increased II TO REGULATION (EC) NO 414% since 2005 Q2 2009 during the more than 500% of the number of scripts jumped.
CWCI analyze effects of these drugs claim costs and encountered a strong correlation between, on the one hand, by adding a list (II) fees and the exploitation of workers from the risks related to adverse effects for injured. Swedlow announced that received the highest level of applicants from all kinds of dosage was 200% higher than the lower medical costs applicants receiving a factor.
My bet is the biggest problem is due to the inappropriate prescribing habits of relatively few visits And give odds.  .
What does this mean for you?
