1. Progressive costs report (CIS report)

For: Employers and managers

This report is part of our Customer Information System (CIS).


Description: This report illustrates how claim costs accumulate over the life of a claim.

Access Level Required: Management level access

Export options: .pdf, .rtf

Benefits: This report is in contrast to the other reports available in CIS because it reports on costs of claims that occur in each year, as opposed to just costs indiscriminate of the claims injury year. In that sense it is beneficial to see the costs progress for all accepted claims of a given year.

Parameters: The report is calculated based on accepted claims with a date of injury within the last 5 years inclusive of the current year.
