NYS WCB Announces Public Comment Period for Revised Medical Fee Schedule

Please be aware that after initial public comment period, the Workers Compensation Board (WCB) has produced a revised proposed fee schedule. There are comments available for review on the State Register and the fee schedule is available for review on the WCB website

The NYSCA Officers, Board, and WC Committee are reviewing the new proposal. It appears the first round of comments have facilitated some meaningful improvements, with inclusion appropriate electrodiagnostic codes and an increased RVU limits per visit (12, 15, & 18 for routine visits, visits with reexamination, and initial examination, respectively). We are aware that there is still work to be done particularly on the conversion factor and inclusion of CPT codes for MUA.

As you review this document please feel free to send your comments and suggestions to [email protected]. The comment period for this is 30 days, so we will be expediting a response, coordinated with the Council. Your input is always appreciated.
