California’s private, self-insured employers experienced almost no change in workers compensation claims frequency during 2012, the California Workers’ Compensation Institute reported Monday.

A slight reduction in indemnity claim frequency offset a slight increase in the incidence of medical-only claims, according to the CWCI’s analysis of data compiled by California’s Office of Self Insurance Plans.

California’s private self-insured employers covered 2.12 million workers during 2012, compared with 2.11 million in the 2011. They reported 77,557 workers comp claims in 2012, which was nearly unchanged from the 77,386 claims filed in 2011.
