IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING AMENDMENTS TO THE MARYLAND OFFICIAL GUIDE OF MEDICAL AND SURGICAL FEES REGULATION:
At an open meeting on February 28, 2008, the Maryland Workers' Compensation Commission adopted, with minor, non-substantive changes, the proposed amendments to COMAR 14.09.03 Guide of Medical and Surgical Fees.

The Workers' Compensation Commission is in the process of converting pre-printed form templates: Notice of Employee's Claim (C-30), Employer/Insurer Response (C-40), Notice of Hearing (H-51), etc., to an entirely computer printed format. This change will allow us to gain significant efficiencies within our computer operations.  Once implemented we will no longer generate the C-30 and the C-40 on colored paper (blue or pink, respectively).  The conversion of most of these forms should be completed by mid-year calendar 2008. Thereafter, all notices from the Commission will be on white paper.
