California Works to Track COVID-19 Claims

The Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau (WCIRB) of California is working to track claims for COVID-19 by partnering with workers’ comp organizations across the country to create unique codes to identify claims arising from COVID-19.

WCIRB hopes the use of these codes will allow the cost of these claims to be tracked, measured, and treated appropriately in pure premium ratemaking and experience rating, while also creating a dataset to measure the impact of COVID-19 on claims which can be analyzed in the future.
