COVID-19 Hypothetical Scenarios Tool

Intended Use

The calculations presented in this tool model the potential impact to expected losses for the associated jurisdiction and workforce under the scenario framework described in NCCI’s research brief, “COVID-19 and Workers Compensation: Modeling Potential Impacts (PDF).”

NOTE: The model scenario may not include consideration of all potential benefit costs such as permanent disability, mental illness, and employers liability.

Change Log

Updated on May 22, 2020

  • Added Texas-Specific Medical Severities

    • Hospital in-patient and physician cost relativities, based on data received from the Texas Department of Insurance, are applied to the previously shown countrywide medical severity estimates to display Texas-specific values

    • Changed footnote 1 to reflect the added Texas medical severity data source when applicable

  • Added a note above the numbered footnotes to emphasize that rows using data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics include all workers, regardless of how work-related injury costs are funded
