Title: Amends Scheduling Authority In Workers Compensation Rehabilitation

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill authorizing retrospective rating plan employers and groups to schedule medical exams for workers' compensation claims.

Highlights:

  • Requires mandated performance audits of claims management systems to include evaluations of the scheduling authority granted to RRPE's (Sec. 2).
