Job Impact Statement
Proposed Amendment of Part 324 of 12 NYCRR
(Amendment of the Medical Treatment Guidelines)

The proposed rule will not have an adverse impact on jobs. The proposed rule amends Part 324 of 12 NYCRR, known as the Medical Treatment Guidelines, and establishes the necessary processes to support the use of such guidelines.

The rule does not eliminate any existing process, procedure, or program. While the amendment to the Medical Treatment Guidelines adopted in 2010 should reduce medical disputes, including the need for prior approval for special services two procedures and for treatment consistent with the carpal tunnel syndrome Guidelined, such reductions will not result in an adverse impact on jobs.
