The agenda includes both a status update on the new hospital and non-hospital region fee schedules and the preferred provider program (PPP) notification form.
At the September Medical Fee Advisory Board meeting, Mitch Weisz, the IWCC Chairman, stated that their goal was to have a finalized version of the PPP notification form available to the public by early October.
As of this morning (October 17), the IWCC website stated:
When an employee notifies the employer of an injury, an employer that has a PPP must notify the employee of this in writing. The Workers' Compensation Medical Fee Advisory Board is exchanging draft versions of the PPP notification letter. We will post it once it is completed.
We will provide any updates regarding the PPP notification form, and any other topics covered at the Board meeting, later this week.
