SWCB Introduces Revised Forms for Medical Treatment Guides

The New York State Workers' Compensation Board on Friday introduced revised forms for use with changes to the state's Medical Treatment Guidelines announced on March 1.

SWCB Chairman Robert Beloten said in a regulatory notice that Forms MG-1 and MG-2 contain changes needed to implement improvements recommended by interest groups. The changes have been adopted by regulation.

MG-1 is the Attending Doctor's Request for Optimal Prior Approval and Carrier's/Employer's Response.

MG-2 is the Attending Doctor's Request for Approval of Variance and Carrier's Response.

Beloten said older versions of the forms and replies to the older version of the forms will not be scanned or processed by SWCB after June 30.

Questions should be directed to the SWCB Medical Director's Office at 800-781-2362.

The notice is here.
