EEOICP Program Statistics


Last year, the DEEOIC deployed a new case management system for use by our claims staff. The new system is constructed differently than the previous system, and we determined that it was appropriate to re-examine our statistics and how they are displayed on the web site. For the past several months, we have been working on reconstructing the site and the statistics. Therefore, viewers may notice some differences in the web statistics.

The separate category for the non-covered applications has been removed and those counts are now included in the Final Decision counts. Although the number of posted denials appears to increase, there is not an increase in total numbers. Denials are being shown under a single category instead of being split into two separate counts.

In the past, on our state-by-state pages, medical bill payments were attributed to each state in which any claimant (including multiple survivors) on the case resided, resulting in an overstatement of the amount of medical bill payments in a given state. Medical bill payments are now being attributed to the state in which the employee resides. Although the National page total was not affected by this change, the current state medical totals will show a reduction from previously-reported amounts.

A list of definitions for the terms used on the EEOICP Program Statistics web pages is available here.
