BWC Regulation Changes
There is now only one appeal step at the MCO level, not two, as in the past.
The BWC adopted a new rule dealing with vocational rehabilitation, O.A.C. 4123-18-03, which changes eligibility for vocational rehabilitation. It will no longer require an injured worker have a 25% permanent partial disability. It will be enough that the injured worker has job restrictions documented by the physician of record.
