Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features a freshly posted version of the California Division of Workers’ Compensation’s proposed regulations for the adoption of standardized paper medical treatment billing forms and electronic medical billing standards.
The proposed regulations are part of the division’s 12-point plan to help control medical costs in California’s Workers’ Comp system, and aim to encourage encourage electronic billing and faster payments to physicians. Find out more (including a link to the revised proposal!) by clicking here.
