Market Basket Comparison

The workers’ compensation market basket is the sum of maximum payment for 5 physical medicine procedure codes in an outpatient practice setting. It is developed for comparison purposes only. In no way is it intended to reflect how much a practitioner will be paid for any given date of service. Market basket data is provided for each state workers’ compensation fee schedule, for the Medicare fee schedule in that state, and is further reported as a percentage of Medicare for each state. National averages are also reported to enable states to compare to national averages.
