Maine Workers’ Compensation Board updates medical fee schedule with new fees

This month the Maine Workers’ Compensation Board completed its annual update to the medical fee schedule. The fee schedule governs the amounts employers and insurers must pay for physician, outpatient, and inpatient services. Each year under Title 39-A §209-A the Board adopts the current CMS relative values and Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes, and applies the Board’s conversion factor to determine the new fee for each service. In addition, the Board will vote on a new medical fee rule in January 2015 and issue the rule for public comment.

A spreadsheet of updated weights and fees may be found on the Maine Workers’ Compensation Board homepage. For questions on the updated fee schedule, contact the attorneys at Tucker Law Group.
