Costs Growing for Late-Term Care from Workplace Injuries

A growing percentage of medical costs for workplace injuries is for services provided more than 20 years after an injury occurs, a new report says.

The study, “Medical Services for Claims 20 or More Years Old,” released by the National  Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI), says, “It is likely that more than 10 percent of the cost of medical benefits for the workplace injuries that occur this year will be for services provided more than two decades into the future,” and adds that the percentage has been growing and may continue to grow.
