Massive Coalition Seeks National Workers' Compensation Health Reform

Workers' Compensation reform is being urged by a large national coalition. The group has launched a new website "www.protectingworkers.org and is seeking a direct and immediate change in the delivery of health benefits for injured workers.

"GOAL 6 – REFORM WORKERS’ COMPENSATION PROGRAMS. 
Workers who are injured or made ill because of conditions at work face barriers to health
care access and receive inadequate benefits under separate state workers’ compensation
healthcare systems. Prevention and treatment of work-related health conditions should be
an integral component of comprehensive healthcare system reform."
