SELECTED INDICATORS IN WORKERS’ COMPENSATION:   A REPORT CARD FOR CALIFORNIANS

Vocational Rehabilitation Costs

Vocational Rehabilitation Settlements

The WCIRB has compiled information from the most current WCIRB Permanent Disability Claim Survey. In total, 9.6 percent of accident-year 2003 PD claim costs involved vocational rehabilitation settlements as of, on average, 28 months. The average settlement in these cases was $6,046. For accident-year 2003, the first year in which such settlements were allowed, settlements comprised 11 percent of total vocational rehabilitation costs.

Vocational Rehabilitation Incurred Costs

The WCIRB has summarized initial first unit report level statistical submissions with respect to accident-year 2005 claims on 2004 policies and accident-year 2004 claims on 2003 policies. The table fbelow shows preliminary summaries of this information at first unit report level for partial accident years and at a combination of first and second unit report levels for complete accident years. This preliminary unit statistical information suggests that vocational rehabilitation cost per claim has declined by approximately 75 percent subsequent to the reforms.
