Workers' Compensation Board Press Releases


 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 1, 2010

Chair Robert Beloten Statement on the Release of the
Medical Treatment Guidelines Proposed Regulations

This week, the Board fulfilled a promise of the 2007 Workers' Compensation reforms by publishing proposed regulations that will make evidence based medical treatment guidelines mandatory in our system. These Guidelines would not have been possible without the courageous consensus reached between Organized Labor and the Business Community along side the hard work of the Workers' Compensation Reform Task Force. It is my strong belief that the guidelines will improve both the quality and timeliness of the medical care provided to injured workers, while at the same time reducing system costs.
