MARCH 19

As many in the workers’ compensation community are aware, for the past few months, the Workers’ Compensation Commission has been focusing attention on the process whereby providers of vocational rehabilitation services are selected.  Historically, the process has been unregulated, leaving it up to the parties to work out the selection.  In those cases where issues to resolve the impasse were filed, the matter was generally assigned to the Commission’s Support Services Division for provider selection.
