|The 26th Alaska State Legislature, 2009 - 2010|
House Passes L&C Committee's HB 314
|Bill sets medical fee schedule under Alaska Workers’ Compensation Act|
Posted: March 31, 2010
(Juneau) - The Alaska State House today unanimously passed House Bill 314, legislation setting maximum fees for medical treatment and services under the Alaska Workers’ Compensation Act. The House Labor & Commerce Committee sponsored the bill.
This is the first step in fixing long-standing problems in the workers’ compensation process. We can’t afford to let the cap on these fees expire.
HB 314 establishes a new fee schedule for medical treatment and services provided under the Workers’ Comp. Act. This would replace the current fee schedule set to expire on DEC. 31, 2010. Without HB 314, fees would go uncapped until a solution could be found.
