Workers’ Comp Board proposes additions to medical treatment guidelines
The proposed regulation would add post-traumatic stress disorder and acute stress disorder and major depressive disorder to the medical treatment guidelines, effective Jan. 1, 2021.
MTGs are standards of medical treatment within the workers’ compensation system that help establish a single standard of medical care for injured workers and reduce disputes between payers and medical providers over treatment issues.
