Abstract:

In response to rising occupational health care costs within workers’ compensation programs, states during the 1990s introduced cost containment strategies adapted from non-occupational employmentbased group health insurance plans. In particular, managed care approaches and techniques gained popularity with workers’ compensation health insurers. An early evaluation of Florida’s experience with workers’ compensation managed care suggested that this strategy could have significant potential for controlling the workers’ compensation medical costs
