WC Advocacy

 

As you may be aware, the New York State Worker's Compensation Board (WCB) recently proposed changes to its fee schedule for physical therapy services.   When finalized, the proposal will have a significant impact not only on workers' compensation fees for PT services, but also on PT fees paid by all insurers and payers.  More background and detail is available in NYPTA's issue briefing document.

 

The Board's proposed fee schedule is welcomed as it is the first comp rate increase in more than 22 years.  However, the proposal maintains a cap of 8 Relative Value Units (RVUs) for follow up visits.  NYPTA opposes the continuation of imposing this cap as it artificially limits care that can be provided.

 

It is critically important that the Workers' Compensation Board hear directly from the physical therapy community in order to ensure the best possible outcome.
