Injured Workers, Labor, Doctors, Consumers to Oppose Workers Compensation Insurance Rate Increase
 
Leaders of labor unions, consumers, injured workers and their advocates, and doctors who treat injured workers have called a Monday, June 8, news conference to oppose the insurance industry/s request for a 23% premium rate increase. The news conference will occur in conjunction with a hearing called by the Insurance Commissioner to examine the insurance industry/s claim that medical costs require such an unprecedented rate increase.
 
Todd McFarren, president of the California Applicants Attorneys Association (CAAA), opposes the insurance industry/s proposed 23% increase in workers compensation premiums because "the insurance carriers/ rate hikes would not go to medical treatment for injured workers, but to profits or to pay the skyrocketing cost of denying medical care and permanent disability compensation."
