Medical Utilization & Reimbursement Outcomes

The goal of this study was to measure the associations between the California workers’ compensation medical care reforms implemented in 2004 – most notably, mandatory utilization review, the ACOEM guidelines, and the 24-visit caps on physical therapy and chiropractic care – and changes in the amount of treatment provided to injured workers, and the associated medical reimbursements.
