WCC Treatment Authorization Memorandum - May 27, 1998


MEMORANDUM NO. 98-08

TO: Commissioners, District Administrators, Self-Insureds, Insurance Carriers, Attorneys, Unions, Medical Practitioners, and Advisory Board Members
FROM: Jesse M. Frankl, Chairman
DATE: May 27, 1998
RE: Authorization for Treatment

Once a physician is authorized to treat a patient under the Workers’ Compensation Act, the physician may continue to treat the claimant without certification as long as the treatment is within the guidelines of the medical protocols. Copies of the medical protocols may be obtained from the Workers’ Compensation Commission’s Education Services at 1-800-223-WORK.

Authorization to treat a claimant presumes that the patient and physician are in compliance with Connecticut Workers' Compensation Commission law and its administrative regulations.
