Greetings, I miss doing tips about carpal tunnel and stuff.
The FL Department of Financial Services has released an updated report on the Covid WC claims statistics through 7/31/21. A link to the entire report is below, but here are some nuggets I pulled from the report:
- There have been 46,505 compensable Covid indemnity claims, 4% have been in the First Responder and Healthcare fields (Health and Education and Public Administration buckets from page 15).
- Cases are on the rise again in Florida, 11% of claims were Covid related in June, 40% in July, August is not available yet.
- 43,797 of the compensable Covid claims cost less than $5,000, but many are still open and growing.
- There have been 67 compensable Covid death claims
As always, I am available for compensability questions.
