In research news:

WCRI released its free Medical Price Index for Workers’ Compensation, Eighth Edition (MPI-WC). The report focuses only on medical services that are commonly provided to injured workers – largely related to diagnosis and treatment of trauma and orthopedic conditions. The MPI-WC tracks medical prices paid in 31 states (including Louisiana) from calendar year 2008 through 2015 for professional services billed by physicians, physical therapists, and chiropractors. The medical services fall into eight groups: evaluation and management, physical medicine, surgery, major radiology, minor radiology, neurological testing, pain management injections, and emergency care.
