1 Idaho Industrial Commission Public Hearing October 15, 2007

2 © Ingenix, Inc. 2 Using Information to Form Conclusions: Idaho Professional Services Information from SIF  Medicare  Ingenix Data  Health Plan Data  Surrounding States  External Resources  102% Above Transitional Medicare  Greater than 80 th Percentile  3 rd highest of 7 neighboring states  Resources indicate high reimbursement Remaining ‘As Is’ to Revised Methods Likely Stakeholder Meetings; TBD

3 © Ingenix, Inc. 3 Key Findings  Using the 2006 data studied with the current conversion factors, the IIC is approximately 102% above Idaho Medicare.  The 36 individual conversion factors have considerable variances in amounts on a type of service basis when using Medicare as a benchmark.  The IIC schedule was analyzed using the Ingenix MDR 50 th and 80 th allowed percentiles. IIC reimbursement was greater than the 80 th percentile.  For select codes, (top 20 work comp codes), IIC is 3 rd highest among its neighboring 7 states.  Idaho has the lowest number of physicians per 100,000 population. Incentives may be required so that physicians treat workers’ compensation patients.  The needs of the injured employee are most important - Access to care must not be hindered.

4 © Ingenix, Inc. 4 The IIC Proposal  Idaho Industrial Commission is proposing ten conversion factors.  Modeling the IIC proposal using the Top 500 criteria shows:  Near budget neutral results  Increases to: –Medicine Codes –Surgery Group 3 –Surgery Group 5  Decreases to: –Surgery Group 1 –Surgery Group 2 –Surgery Group 4  Radiology and Path / Lab remain the same  Note on case mix / reduction of conversion factors  Minimal changes in type of service category impact using Top 500 criteria.  Percentages above national Medicare range from 269% for Surgery Group I to 19% above national Medicare for Medicine Group I
