2018 rate increases for California claims
#1
The weekly disability rate for those with a life pension(70%>) or permanent total (100 %) will increase 3.642% on 1/1/2018.
The mileage for medical services after 1/1/2018 will increase to .545 per mile.

Also
California implements a drug formulary that applies to all comp treatment as of 1/1.

The rules do allow for "tapering" of opioid use to an approved Rx as long as the physician has an approved plan.


Happy new year.
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.

You too!
I am not an attorney.Anything I write should not be considered legal advice.I am writing from my own personal experiences,which is not from any sort of legal background. You should consult with an attorney over legal issues. In California, if you cannot get an attorney you can consult with an I&A officer.
