Medical Regulations

Telehealth and Work Comp

We have fielded many calls at ERD regarding telehealth/telemedicine in workers’ compensation in the last few weeks regarding COVID-19. With the COVID-19 emergency our team thought it appropriate to provide some guidance for stakeholders in Montana. The situation is fluid, so we may update the guidance as needed.

Guidance

Periodically the Department may post clarifications on the medical fee schedules.  These can be located once the user has accepted the website usage permissions and logged into the site.  See the Montana Facility Fee Schedule for the following clarification:

Reopening of Closed Workers' Compensation Medical Benefits

The new administrative rules will be in place as well as the business process for injured workers to begin submitting petitions requesting reopening of their medical benefits that were statutorily closed by MCA 36-71-704(1)(f). This process is only for those dates of injury on or after July 1, 2011.
