Board AnnouncementsEffective Date Moved: New Medical Treatment Guidelines, DME Fee Schedule and Drug Formulary Prescription Refill Compliance To Take Effect Second Quarter 2021

Board Announcements

January 11, 2021

You may have received a message that the new NYS Workers' Compensation Medical Treatment Guidelines (MTGs) were scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2021.

Due to the health crisis currently facing New York State, the MTGs will now go into effect in the second quarter of 2021, coinciding with the launch of OnBoard: Limited Release (timeline to be communicated in the coming months). Additionally, the effective date for the Board's Durable Medical Equipment Fee Schedule, and the date by which prescription refills must comply with the Drug Formulary, have also been changed to align with this timeframe.

Please see below for additional information on these topics and watch for further details in the coming months.
