WCRI Blogging Live – Medical Care
This is the WCRI blogging live crossing States lines for Medical care
Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASC’s) – in New York City vs. New Jersey
Dr. Brogdan Savych – medical researcher and author for WCRI
Shoulder Arthroscopies average ASC cost increased significantly from 2011 through 2014 – 25%+ per year.
Half of all surgeries in New Jersey ASC’s are from New York claimants
New York City injured workers treating in New Jersey – 326% more than New York.
Pennsylvania workers on the New Jersey border do not treat that much in New Jersey.
The questions I had on this session, but had to step away to take a phone call were:
- Why did Pennsylvania workers not treat that much in New Jersey
- Were the physicians from New Jersey recruiting the injured workers ?
- What are the medical control statuses in Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey?
- Is there any upcoming legislation in any of these states that would change the treatment dynamics presented?
I will definitely have to update this article after I read the conference manual on this presentation.
