Board Announces Public Comment Period for Proposed Medical Fee Schedule

Date: June 6, 2018

As announced on April 17, 2018, in Subject Number 046-1058 Proposals to Improve Medical Care for Injured Workers, the New York State Workers' Compensation Board (Board) proposes to increase reimbursement fees paid to medical providers. The proposed changes to the Medical Fee Schedule have been published in the June 6, 2018, State Register, and the Board will accept comments from the public for 60 days.

The proposal includes updated Current Procedural Technology (CPT) codes, increased conversion factors and amended Ground Rules, which are available under the Medical Fee Schedules section on the Board's website. Those who do not have access to CPT codes with descriptions can arrange to review them in person at Board offices by contacting regulations@wcb.ny.gov.

The Board encourages the public, injured workers, employers, self-insured employers, insurance carriers, third-party administrators, attorneys, medical providers, and labor and business organizations to provide comment. Please submit your comments on or before August 6, 2018, to regulations@wcb.ny.gov. The Board will evaluate all comments received, and will consider necessary revisions as the process advances.

We look forward to receiving your comments.
