A second 15-day notice of modification to proposed Official Medical Fee Schedule (OMFS) regulations has been distributed to interested parties and posted to the DWC web site. These changes concern only the inpatient and outpatient fee schedules. Members of the public may comment on the revisions until 5 p.m., Saturday, April 24, 2004.
These regulations, once adopted and in effect, will replace emergency regulations now in effect that implement the lien filing fee provisions in SB 228, enacted last year. Further information and the modified proposals can found at: http://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/dwcpropregs/OMFSEmerRegs2.htm.
