WORKERS’ COMPENSATION INSURANCE VS. GROUP HEALTH: CALIFORNIANS INJURED AT WORK GET SECOND-CLASS TREATMENT
Why does the State of California require Group Health Insurers to Meet High Standards and not Workers’ Compensation Insurers?
Sacramento, CA – The California Applicants’ Attorneys Association (CAAA), whose members represent Californians injured on the job, today launched a new series comparing quality health care measures in workers’ compensation insurance to group health insurance. The first release compares the percentage of the insurance premium dollar that goes to health care and disability compensation to insurance carriers’ administrative overhead. Workers’ compensation insurance carriers spend more than twice as much (36% vs. 15%) on their own operations.
