August 8Attention Practitioners/Insurers:  In the Maryland Workers' Compensation Commission's  continuing effort to improve its process efficiencies and reduce its environmental and fiscal impact the Commission will no longer provide a "pink" envelope for the return of the completed C40 response.  Implementation of the WCC's automated processing capabilities, has rendered the "pink" envelope obsolete.  Therefore, effective September 1, 2007, the Commission will no longer provide the "pink" return envelope in the mailing of the notice of an employee's claim.  Questions, comments or concerns may be directed to Neshera Jarrett at 410.864.5288.
