IndustryWeek recently compared workers’ compensation costs and benefits across the United States and listed Massachusetts in its top 20 states for workers’ compensation. Massachusetts was the only New England state to appear in the top 20, while several western and Midwestern states made the cut.
IndustryWeek’s rankings included the workers’ compensation premium per worker, based on the Insurance Information Institute, the average benefit payment per capita-total state workforce, among other factors.
According to Deborah Talbot, president and CEO of Health Resources Corporation in Woburn, Massachusetts, the rates, benefits, and awards vary widely according to state, a statement that was consistent with the findings of IndustryWeek’s workers’ compensation analysis.
