Board Announces Public Comment Period for
Revised Medical Fee Schedule

Date: October 3, 2018

The New York State Workers’ Compensation Board has prepared a revision to the proposed Medical Fee Schedule announced in Subject Number 046-1071, Board Announces Public Comment Period for Proposed Medical Fee Schedule on June 6, 2018. The changes have been made in response to comments and feedback from our stakeholders. The proposed revision was published in the State Register on October 3, 2018, and the Board will accept comments from the public for 30 days. Please note, these are proposed changes and have not yet been formally adopted. Therefore, the current fee schedule, adopted on June 1, 2012, continues to remain in effect.

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 November 1, 2018, to regulations@wcb.ny.gov. Following the public comment period, the Board will evaluate all comments received, and consider any necessary revisions. When final regulations are adopted, the Board will announce an effective date for the new schedule.

We look forward to receiving your comments.
