|California Division of Workers’ Compensation Posts Additional Adjustments to Official Medical Fee Schedule (Ambulance Services)|
By Lonce Lamonte and Newsline from the California Department of Industrial Relations - March 6, 2018
The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) has posted an order adjusting the Ambulance Services section of the Official Medical Fee Schedule (OMFS) to conform to relevant 2018 changes in the Medicare payment system as required by Labor Code section 5307.1.
The order is the second Administrative Director order for the 2018 update to the Ambulance Services Fee Schedule. It adopts an updated public use file for 2018, which was issued on February 14, 2018, by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The updated public use file implements legislative provisions of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018. The new legislation extends three temporary add-on provisions that would have expired on December 31, 2017.
The Administrative Director Order dated February 28, 2018, adopts the updated public use file for services rendered on or after January 1, 2018, and can be found on DWC’s OMFS page.
