New Workers’ Compensation Board initiatives
The WCB is developing two new initiatives to help streamline the workers' compensation system.
The first is a web-based portal for prior authorization requests for medical treatment and care. This will allow parties of interest in a case to receive notifications via the portal and eliminate paper mailings.
The second is a fee schedule for durable medical equipment, which will include a price for DME. Prior authorization requests for DME will also be submitted through a web-based portal.
HANYS will inform members as soon as the WCB publishes proposed regulations on these new initiatives. Contact: Vic Aufiero
