Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features two interesting pieces coming out of California, the first of which being the recently buzzed about General Provisions & Criteria that were recently sent out by State Compensation Fund of California to providers, stipulating conditions for remaining in their Medical Provider Network, including limitations surrounding opioids and compound drugs.
The California Society of Industrial Medicine and Surgery raised a number of concerns regarding the criteria, and elaborated on them in a letter to the State Fund.
