Medical Status Form
NOTE: After careful consideration, our office has decided to take down the revised Medical Status Form that was to be used beginning April 1. The original Medical Status Form dated 09/19/11 is available. Please continue to use the original form. We will soon repost the revised form as a “DRAFT” and will seek external input through this website. If you have registered your email on this website, you will be notified and asked if you wish to provide feedback and comments on the revised “DRAFT” form. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused. (Posted 04/11/2013)
Effective July 1, 2011, 39-71-1036, MCA, requires the treating physician or a designee to complete the form following every office visit with the injured worker. The Legislature directed the department to create the form to be used for injuries or occupational diseases occurring on or after July 1, 2011.
The form was originally finalized the first week of October 2011, and was available in a fillable PDF version, a Word version, and triplicate hard copy.
The form has been updated and is available as of April 1, 2013. The current version (dated 04/2013) of the form can be used immediately. To accommodate those who have supplies of the original form, both versions of the form are acceptable means for reporting until September 30, 2013. After September 30, 2013, only the current version of the form should be used or accepted.
Your name and e-mail are requested so we can send email notices when updates or improvements are made to the form. Once you enter this information, you will be able to download the form as a fillable PDF. The instructions are located on page 4 of the form.
Shortly, the form will be available in a Word version as well.
