The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) announces its emergency regulations 36.7 and 46.2 for medical-legal evaluations, which became effective on May 14, 2020, will expire on March 12, 2021. The expiration date is in accordance with Executive Orders N-40-20 and N-66-20.
There are two possible 210-day extensions if those Executive Orders remain in effect. The emergency regulations can be found on the DWC website.
These emergency regulations help injured workers and employers continue to move their workers’ compensation claims toward a resolution and avoid additional and undue delay. The regulations address how medical-legal evaluations may proceed during this emergency period. The regulations also provide alternative forms of service for required forms related to medical-legal evaluations and reports.
