Co-signatures for Physician’s Assistants


MEMORANDUM NO. 2018-04

TO: WCC Commissioners, District Administrators, Advisory Board, Legal Advisory Panel, Medical Advisory Panel, Medical Practitioners, Self-Insureds, Insurance Carriers, Medical Care Plans, Attorneys, and Unions.
FROM: Stephen M. Morelli, Chairman
DATE: June 12, 2018
RE: Co-signatures for Physician’s Assistants

Effective June 1, 2018, the Workers’ Compensation Commission will no longer require the co-signature of a physician on forms (Forms 36, Voluntary Agreements, etc.) or medical reports signed by a physician’s assistant (PA). This action is being taken so as to reflect what appears to be the real world custom and practice of medical providers. Forms will no longer be denied at the district office level solely for the lack of a co-signature.
