Regulations Proposed Amendment of Sections 441.1, 441.2, 441.3, and 441.5 of 12 NYCRR


Date: March 31, 2021

The Chair proposes the amendments of sections 441.1. 441.2, 441.3, and 441.5 of Title 12 NYCRR to update the NY Workers' Compensation Drug Formulary (Formulary); set a new date for compliance with the Formulary for refills and renewals (previously delayed during COVID-19); and clarify that within OnBoard: Limited Release, a medical marijuana prior authorization request (PAR) will no longer be submitted via the existing variance request process, but will instead be submitted and processed in the new system as a "Medication PAR" (although the criteria needed for approval will remain the same). The Notice of Proposed Rule Making was published in the March 31, 2021 edition of the State Register. Comments on the proposal will be accepted for 60 days after publication.
