2016 Workers Compensation Issues Report: Fall Edition

Posted Date: October 31, 2016

Message from Bill Donnell, CPCU
President and CEO

We are pleased to present to you our first fall edition of NCCI’s Workers Compensation Issues Report.

It’s been six months since our Annual Issues Symposium (AIS), where we had great conversations about important industry topics, and we want to build on that momentum.

At AIS we presented the State of the Line Report—a comprehensive look at financial results for the workers compensation line of business. The results presented reflected the most up-to-date data, including our preliminary estimates for Calendar Year 2015. In this Issues Report, we provide updated results for 2014 and 2015 as well as preliminary estimates for Calendar Year 2016.

Additionally, you will find articles that shed light on the transforming environment in which we operate. Topics covered include:

  • Insights on the changing legislative landscape
  • Updates on recent and impactful Florida and Oklahoma decisions
  • ​An analysis of the ways in which data is driving improved outcomes across our industry

Finally, we are pleased to share positive success stories showcasing the important role that the workers compensation system plays for the American worker. Our thanks to the Accident Fund Insurance Company of America and to the State Accident Insurance Fund Corporation for sharing these terrific stories.

We hope you will find this Issues Report to be a valuable tool. NCCI will continue to provide leading industry research, analysis, and issues overviews at ncci.com throughout the year.

Please enjoy this fall edition of NCCI’s Issues Report.

Best regards,
Bill Donnell, CPCU
