California Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) Posts Order to Update Medical Treatment Utilization Schedule (MTUS)
By Lonce Lamonte and the DWC Newsline - November 23, 2021

The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) has posted an order adopting regulations to update the evidence-based treatment guidelines of the Medical Treatment Utilization Schedule (MTUS).

The updates, effective for medical treatment services rendered on or after November 23, 2021, incorporate by reference the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine’s (ACOEM’s) most recent treatment guidelines to the Clinical Topics section of the MTUS.

The ACOEM guidelines that are incorporated by reference into the MTUS are:

  • Low Back Disorders Guideline (ACOEM February 13, 2020)

The administrative order consists of the order and two addenda:

  • Addendum one shows the regulatory amendments directly related to the evidence-based update to the MTUS.
  • Addendum two contains a hyperlink to the ACOEM guideline adopted and incorporated into the MTUS by reference.

Health care providers treating, evaluating (QME), or reviewing (UR or IMR) in the California workers’ compensation system may access the MTUS (ACOEM) Guidelines and MTUS Drug List at no cost by registering for an account.
