Board Bulletins and Subject Numbers

April 16, 2010

The Workers' Compensation Board will be hosting an informational program on Wednesday, April 21, 2010 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM to discuss issues related to inpatient rate reform which went into effect on December 1, 2009.

The new system is based on All Patient Refined Diagnostic Related Groups (APR-DRG) and incorporates a new rate methodology for inpatient hospital care for patients covered by workers' compensation and no-fault auto insurance beginning December 1, 2009.

Carriers and hospitals have raised important questions about how the new system works. The program will provide a basic introduction to the new system. Representatives from the Department of Health (which prepares the rate schedule), 3M Health Information Systems (the Department of Health's contractor on APR-DRG), and the Hospital Association of New York State will answer questions from the audience.

The webinar will also cover issues related to reconciling previously paid bills from January to November 2009 when the DOH releases January 2009 rates.

To register for this webinar, please complete the registration form available online at Space is limited so please register early. There is no cost for this program.

We hope to make a recording of the event available afterwards for those who are not able to attend the webinar.
