Workers’ Compensation Agency (WCA) releases its MiScorecard for end of year and it shows little change.
Governor Rick Snyder created Michigan Dashboard to provide a quick assessment of state government. We have been critical of this tool because of the metrics used and the missing human component. The WCA has now released its MiScorecard for reporting period December 2017. Here are the currents statistics.
Metric 1: Cost Per Claim
This metric continues to show 11.5% growth over a four-year period. This is down from 12% growth during the previous reporting period. The WCA gets a passing grade (green) because it is less than target 25% growth.
Metric 2: WC Cost of Premium Ranking
The WCA gets a fair score (yellow) because it is currently ranked 34 lowest out of 50 states for cost of premium. The target goal is top 10 cheapest states in the country. It was previously ranked 32 of 50 so a “thumbs up” showing progress has been given.
Metric 3: Workers’ Compensation Agency
The WCA gets a failing grade (red) and a “thumbs down” because it has not hit 50% for electronic filings. This metric has decreased from 26.5% to 26.0% since the last reporting period.
Metric 4: Duration of Temporary Disability
The WCA receives a passing score (green) for reducing duration of temporary disability from 17 to 16 weeks. The target is 15 weeks.
