Prescription Drugs/ Survey

Did you know that 19% of the cost of workers compensation claims were prescription drugs.. A group of employers are preparing recommendations to address ways to curb or eliminate prescription drugs in our workers compensation system. The recommendations will be provided to the Director of the Department of Industrial Relations[ Christine Baker]. Small Business California is part of these discussions.

Have you had any problems with prescription drugs on your workers compensation claims and if so what are the issues?

What do you feel could be done to improve the prescription of drugs in the workers compensation system?

Our survey has been up for a little over a week.

As of this morning we have 666 responses. If you haven’t done so already please complete this important survey. One of the questions we asked was Do you see yourself in business in three years. So far 23% of you said no. I find this number scary. I am sure some of you will be retiring but I think that is a pretty high number. What do you think?

See survey link below. Please forward to others.
