Dear WCAN Member,
Each year, various government and private organizations track, compile, analyze and publish mountains of data on Californias workers compensation system. Although this research is critical for policymakers and system stakeholders to understand whats happening in the workers compensation system and promote changes when necessary the reports can be dense and fail to deliver the bottom line for what the numbers mean.
Last week, the Workers Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau (WCIRB) published its annual State of the System report. During the past few years, this report has become an increasingly important measurement of Californias workers compensation system. Despite the vast amount of data analyzed by the WCIRB to produce the report, it translates this data into effective visuals and bottom line statements about what the data means.
While we encourage you to look at the report (available here), the bottom line for California is this:
Although the report shows a mixed bag of results and some continued troubles for California, there are signs of improvement for employers and injured workers.
Thank you for working with WCAN to fight for a better, more efficient system.
