A fourth 15-day notice of modification to portions of proposed Official Medical Fee Schedule (OMFS) regulations has been distributed to interested parties and posted to the DWC web site. Members of the public may comment on the revisions until 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 28, 2004. These proposed changes are in response to comments received during an earlier public comment period on these sections, which ended April 2, and also as a result of the identification of other corrections needed.
Once adopted and in effect, the regulations will replace emergency regulations now in effect that implement the medical fee schedule 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.
