New York Chair Zachary Weiss Issues Statement On Workers'
Compensation Board's Efforts To Speed Claims Operations
Albany, NY (CompNewsNetwork) - The New York State Workers' Compensation Board is
working to reduce the amount of time in which controverted claims are resolved from an
average of about 200 days to 90 days or less.
Currently, new regulations are under review to help us accomplish just that. The Board
has made significant progress towards meeting this goal. In fact, since January of this
year, 88 percent of controverted claims have been resolved within this 90–day target.
The Board will continue to focus on improving our procedures to make sure injured
workers receive fair compensation in a timely manner.
