The South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission proposes to amend Regulation 67-1302(A), Maximum Allowable Payments to Medical Practitioners to remove the limitation of using a relative value scale and one conversion factor set by the Commission. Under the current regulation, the Commission is limited to using a relative value scale and a single conversion factor when establishing maximum allowable payments for medical services provided by medical practitioners.
