Change in procedure: Objection to Subpoena for Medical Records- When an objection to a subpoena for the release of medical records is filed by a claimant, the Commission will put the case in line to be set for a hearing on an emergency basis on the issue of relevancy.
The claim will not move forward for hearing on any other issue until the Commissioner has heard and ruled on the objection issue.  This change is noted and available via the MD WCC Subpoena Instructions, Policies/Procedures document posted to our Forms & Instructions page (link).
