The current agenda includes an update from Glen Boyle regarding both potential geozip collapsing scenarios discussed at the Board meeting on August 23. His team was going run an extended analysis for the new Hospital and Non-Hospital regions using both recalculation scenarios for the September 13 meeting.
The agenda also includes discussion regarding the HB 1698–mandated IWCC PPP notification form. The updated note on the IWCC website states
The Department of Insurance is now accepting Preferred Provider Program (PPP) applications. If you have questions, contact Kari Dennison at the Department of Insurance.
The Workers' Compensation Medical Fee Advisory Board is exchanging draft versions of the PPP notification letter. We will post it once it is completed. (revised 9/1/11)
We’ll provide an overview of any updates to the fee schedules, preferred provider program notification form, etc. later this week.
