Summary
A RAND study used 2011 medical data to examine the impact of implementing a resource-based relative value scale to pay for physician and other practitioner services under the California workers0́9 compensation system. Current allowances under the workersС0́9 compensation fee schedule are approximately 116 percent of Medicare-allowed amounts and, by law, will transition to no more than 120 percent of Medicare payment amounts over four years. Using the policies that the California Division of WorkersС0́9 Compensation proposes to adopt, aggregate allowances are estimated to decrease for four types of service by the end of the transition in 2017: anesthesia (С0́319.5 percent), surgery (С0́320.1 percent), radiology (С0́315.9 percent), and pathology (С0́329.0 percent). Aggregate allowances for evaluation and management visits are estimated to increase by 39.5 percent. Allowances for services classified as С0́medicineС0́+ in the Current Procedural Terminology codebook will increase by 17.3 percent. In the aggregate, across all services, allowances are projected to increase 11.9 percent. Because most specialties furnish different types of services, the impacts by specialty are generally less than the impacts by type of service
