California’s WCIRB Industry Profile Series – Latest Report
By Lonce Lamonte, editor - March 1, 2023

The California Workers' Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau (WCIRB) has released the next report in its Industry Profile series. This series examines an industry sector in California's workers' compensation system and provides insights into key characteristics and cost drivers in the industry. The latest report gives an overview of the healthcare industry in California.

The Research section of the WCIRB website has the full report.  An access link can be found below:

Key findings include:

  • The healthcare industry is one of the largest in California, with over 48,000 workers' compensation policies, and has operations in five distinct healthcare segments that provide medical care. Those segments generate 6 percent of all California workers' compensation insurance premiums.
  • The advisory pure premium rates for the healthcare industry are about 20 percent below the statewide average.
  • Hospitals experienced the largest reduction in payroll and the highest increase in indemnity claim frequency among all healthcare segments during the pandemic.
  • The healthcare industry has the highest share – 41 percent – of indemnity COVID-19 claims among all industries, more than four times the statewide average.
