The New York State Workers’ Compensation Board to propose new medical treatment guidelines

In keeping with the goals of the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board [Board] to create medical guidelines for the treatment of injured workers using the most effective evidence-based modern diagnostic and treatment techniques, the Board plans to propose three new New York Medical Treatment Guidelines (MTGs):

New York Traumatic Brain Injury MTGs

New York Complex Regional Pain Syndrome MTGs

Regulations providing for these updated MTGs and comments from the public will be published in the State Register and on the Board’s websites.
