Workers Comp Research Conference reporting live.

First Session is ACA (American Healthcare Act) effects on Workers Comp.  Dr. Jon Gruber–  Wow this conference is packed.   Kudos to WCRI.   Everyone from WCRI was very helpful and hooked me up to the hotel wireless system so I could do this live (way cool).

I am here as the press with a press pass.  I just met Dr. Christine Yee – An economist with WCRI.  She performed some of the Texas studies for WCRI.  This is an interesting crowd.  It is a mix of data, management and general WC personnel.

Who shows up to hear about Workers Comp statistics?   I am seeing name tags from insurers.  There are some off-the-record presentations over the next two days.  I will likely not be able to live blog any off-the-record type of presentations. 

This is an interesting change from the usual rating bureau conferences.   Andrew Kenneally was nice enough to invite me for the last three or four years.   I decided to show this year as WC is changing not quickly, but steadily.

I will update these reports as it goes through the next two days.
