CWCI

Improving the California workers’ compensation system through research, information, education and representation

The California Workers’ Compensation Institute is a private, nonprofit organization of insurers licensed to write workers' compensation in California, as well as public and private self-insured employers, who serve as associate members. CWCI’s primary function is to generate reliable, objective data that can be used to identify and monitor systemwide trends, assist members in assessing their own operations, and to analyze key issues of interest to the workers’ compensation community and public policymakers. Towards that end, the Institute also produces a wide variety of research publications, provides information and technical training to help industry professionals stay abreast of changes, and serves as a forum where members can consider systemwide issues and reach consensus on practical solutions.

The Institute has scheduled a one-day case law seminar for workers' comp claims, legal and other professionals on May 12 in Long Beach and May 14 in San Francisco.
A CWCI/WCIRB study suggests that a key aspect of SB 863 is working as average facility fee payments to ambulatory surgery centers are down sharply since a revised fee schedule took effect in January 2013.
More than 95% of California workers' comp treatment requests are approved following UR/IMR according to a CWCI study that belies the assertion that these programs generate wholesale denials of necessary care for injured workers.
