California workers' compensation pay used for medical services

In order to maximize the use of public funds, agencies often track the various reasons for disbursement of money.

The tracking enables large public agencies to devise strategies for future development of the program so that it becomes more efficient. Another benefit is that agencies are able to view trends in data and can draw conclusions about whether certain policies are working. The bureau has recently released a report containing the estimated workers' compensation costs for 2016 based on insured employer experience.

Why you should not wait to go to the doctor after a work injury

If you have ever put off medical treatment, you are not alone. The National Center for Biotechnology Information found that about one-third of respondents in a nationwide survey avoided the doctor. It is estimated that many people wait 18.5 days or more before getting help for a chronic health issue. Avoidance of medical care occurs for many different reasons.
