According to a new study by the Workers Compensation Research Institute (WCRI), the payment per claim for prescription drugs used to treat injured workers in Florida was nearly 40 percent higher than in most study states. BUT WHY?
WCRI found that the average payment per claim for prescription drugs in Florida’s workers’ compensation system was $565—38 percent higher than the median of the study states.
The main reason for the higher prescription costs in Florida was that some physicians wrote prescriptions and dispensed the prescribed medications directly to their patients. When physicians dispensed prescription drugs, they often were paid much more than pharmacies for the same prescription.
