From the abstract:
U.S. workers’ compensation payments for medical care and cash benefits for workers disabled by workplace injuries or diseases declined in 2006, according to a study released today by the National Academy of Social Insurance (NASI). The drop in payments in 2006 (the most recent year with complete data) reflects large declines in California payments for workers’ compensation cash benefits as reforms enacted in 2003 and 2004 took effect.
