Compensation claims for covid-19 workers fall in 2021



Covid-19-related workers’ compensation claims fell last year compared to 2020, when the pandemic first hit the United States, but workers’ compensation claims continued to represent the largest share, a group of credit rating agencies said in a report released Tuesday.

The average claim cost over the two-year period was $9,600, according to the report by the National Council on Compensation Insurance and nine other credit rating agencies.

Nationwide, the number of claims and losses for covid-19 fell by more than half, with covid-19 claims falling to 4% of all claims in 2021 from 11% the previous year and total payments falling to 1% from 2%.

Most states saw a spike in COVID-1

9 claims in the fourth quarter of 2020, the study found.

About 75% of COVID-19-related claims in 2020 and the first half of 2021 came from the healthcare sector, while the sector only accounts for about 9% of non-Covid-19 claims. Residential care facilities, which include nursing homes and nursing homes, had the highest relative share of the Covid-19 claims.

The analysis relied on data from 45 jurisdictions, representing $1.1 billion in COVID-19-related losses from approximately 117,000 claims. In addition to NCCI, rating agencies participating in the study were from California, Delaware, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
