The proposed regulation modifies the publication date and contact information for the publisher of the Official New York Workers' Compensation Medical Fee Schedule, the Official New York Workers' Compensation Psychology Fee Schedule, the Official New York Workers' Compensation Podiatry Fee Schedule, and the Official New York Workers' Compensation Chiropractic Fee Schedule and incorporates by reference the June 1, 2012 publication date of such Fee Schedules. The publisher added to the regulations is a successor corporation to the publisher of the Board's Fee Schedules. The amendment will ensure subscribers have updated and accurate information. The June 1, 2012 Fee Schedules simply update CPT codes and relative values associated to them. The proposed changes are mostly ministerial conforming CPT codes to the most recent version published by the American Medical Society and making adjustments to the relative values assigned to each by the Board. The updating of the CPT codes and relative values associated to them conform these codes to a national standard and update relative values consistent with all prior relative values. It is believed that there is no basis for objecting to the proposed amendments.
