He will be discussing the following studies:

Both studies include 23 states, which represent over two-thirds of the workers’ compensation benefits paid in the United States. These states are Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Questions addressed:

  • Are surgeries performed in ASCs less costly than hospital outpatient surgeries?
  • What impact do fee schedules have on payments for surgeries performed at ASCs?
  • What states have the highest and lowest ASC payments for surgeries and why?

Attendance is limited to 100 people and all attendees receive a free copy of the slides. Webinars are $39 for WCRI members; $79 for non-members; and no charge for members of the press, legislators as well as their staff, and state public officials who make policy decisions impacting their state’s workers’ compensation system.
