A REALLY Useful WC Page!

Dear Doctors,

For those of you (or your office staffs) who are dealing with Workers’ Compensation patients, the following web page should be really really useful.  It will help to inform you of who is handling variance requests at the WC carrier involved in your patient’s case.  It will tell you which carriers are participating in the Optional Prior Approval Process, whereby you would file the MG-1 Form.  In addition, it will identify who should receive your request for authorization (C-4 auth Form) at the WC Carrier.  The page also will identify which WC Carriers have chosen not to participate in the optional Prior Approval Process.

In the third paragraph on the page, you or your staff will be able to link to a component that will help you find the WC Carrier for the employer – just in case you don’t have that information.

At the bottom of this WCB web page, you will also find the email address and 1(800) phone number for the Medical Director’s office at the WCB.  There is also a link for their help desk.
