WCC Charges for Medical Services Memorandum - September 21, 2001


MEMORANDUM NO. 2001-07

TO: All Medical Practitioners
FROM: John A. Mastropietro, Chairman
DATE: September 21, 2001
RE: Charges for Medical Services

This communication is to serve as a reminder that an injured worker who is provided medical treatment under the Workers’ Compensation Act should not be billed for such services. Administrative Regulation § 31-279-9(e) provides:

"All charges for medical, surgical, hospital and nursing services, except those for expert testimony, shall be solely the responsibility of the employer or carrier, and no claim will be made against the injured employee for all or part of a fee."

Medical providers who do not abide by this prohibition are subject to removal from the authorized list of Connecticut Workers’ Compensation medical providers.
