Division of Workers' Compensation files an amendment to the ambulance fee schedule section of the official medical fee schedule with the Secretary of State
The Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) has adopted and filed an amendment to the air ambulance service fees section in the official medical fee schedule (OMFS) with the Secretary of State. The amended regulation exempts “air carriers,” as defined in the federal Airline Deregulation Act of 1978, from the application of the fee schedule.
The regulation amends title 8, California Code of Regulations section 9789.70 and is immediately effective. The regulation can be found at http://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/DWCPropRegs/Ambulance_regulations/Ambulance_Regulations.htm.
