The Chair intends to adopt new fee schedules for physicians, chiropractors, podiatrists, psychologists, and other medical professionals who treat injured workers. The new fee schedules will become effective June 1, 2012, and incorporate the latest (2011 and 2012) procedure (CPT) codes from the American Medical Association (AMA). The 2012 fee schedules also incorporate relatively modest technical changes to some ground rules. A summary of those changes, along with the regulation adopting the fee schedules, is available on the Board's website.
The 2012 fee schedules are published by OptumInsight and may be purchased from OptumInsight by writing to Official New York Workers' Compensation Fee Schedule, PO Box 88050, Chicago, IL 60680-9920; by telephone at 1-800-464-3649, option 1; or online at www.optumcoding.com, Keyword New York or http://www.optumcoding.com/Product/40508/.
