Richmond, VA (WorkersCompensation.com) -- If you visited our sister site, Simply Research, recently, you might have come across updates Virginia recently made to its Petition for Medical Treatment.

Here are the instructions the Old Dominion requires to file a Petition for Medical Treatment:

(1) Confirm that the treatment is covered under an Award Order of the Commission
(2) Fill out the form completely
(3) Attach medical records supporting the petition
(4) Upload the Petition for Medical Treatment form and the medical records through WebFile
(5) The Petition for Medical Treatment will be screened by Commission staff. If it is eligible for the Pilot Program, a notice will be sent to the defendants to respond.
(6) If a response is not received within the allotted time, the Chief Deputy Commissioner may schedule a telephone conference between the parties.
(7) Petitions for Medical Treatment that are accepted will be memorialized by the Commission.
(8) Petitions for Medical Treatment that are denied will be referred to either the On the Record or evidentiary hearing dockets.

Pilot program: To expedite the processing of medical treatment claims, the Commission is engaging in a pilot program that began Jan. 1, 2022. To be eligible for the program, the petition for medical treatment must involve issues of medical treatment where the authorized treating physician has ordered treatment for a condition or body part already awarded by the Commission. Because of the short time frame for responses, only WebFile users are eligible.
