WCC 2008 Official Connecticut Practitioner Fee Schedule Memorandum - July 10, 2008


MEMORANDUM NO. 2008-01

TO: Insurance Carriers, Self-Insureds, Third Party Administrators, Medical Practitioners and Advisory Board Members
FROM: John A. Mastropietro, Chairman
DATE: July 10, 2008
RE: 2008 Official Connecticut Practitioner Fee Schedule
effective July 15, 2008

As Chairman of the Workers' Compensation Commission of the state of Connecticut, I am pleased to announce the 2008 workers' compensation fee schedule effective July 15, 2008.

Published by Ingenix, the Official Connecticut Practitioner Fee Schedule will reflect changes to the 2007 fee schedule pursuant to §31-280 C.G.S. (as amended October 1, 2007) which requires a methodology based on the Medicare resource-based relative value scale (RBRVS). This methodology allows us to establish a fee schedule that more closely approximates the methods used in the current medical marketplace and more efficiently and equitably allows determination of appropriate fees for new procedures and for those procedures that change to reflect current technology. The 2008 publication will include revisions and clarification of rules and the new 2008 CPT codes.

The 2008 fee schedule will be effective for medical services rendered on or after July 15, 2008, regardless of the date of injury, that are payable to health care providers authorized or permitted to render care under the Connecticut Worker's Compensation Act.

To order, please contact Ingenix at 1-800-464-3649, option 1, or visit www.shopingenix.com
