Doctor's Progress Report Available In Adobe Format

New York, NY (CompNewsNetwork) - Form EC-4.2 is the on-line, electronically-filed version of Form C-4.2, Doctor's Progress Report. As part of the Board's ongoing effort to facilitate web submission of reports, on June 11, 2009, Form EC-4.2 was converted from an HTML to an ADOBE format.

New Features of Adobe Format

    * Patient data can be saved and used to submit progress reports for follow-up visits. This will significantly reduce the amount of time it will take to complete subsequent progress reports for the same patient since the saved data can be used to pre-fill the form.
    * Incomplete forms can be saved locally then completed and submitted through the Board's web site at a later time.
    * Template files with standard information (doctor, patient, carrier) can be saved and used as a basis for web submission of future reports.
    * The health care provider may attach additional notes to submit with the form, if necessary. These attachment file types are accepted for web submission:
          * Text files (.txt file extension)
          * MS Word files (.doc file extension)
          * Rich Text files (.rtf file extension)
          * Tiff files preferably with a resolution of 200 dpi (.tif or .tiff file extension)
          * JPEG files (.jpg file extension)
          * GIF files (.gif file extension)
          * BMP files (.bmp file extension)
          * PDF files (.pdf file extension)

Web Submission Requirements

    * The health care provider must be authorized by the NYS Workers' Compensation Board. To become authorized, a health care provider should complete and submit Form MR/IME-1, Health Providers Application for Authorization Under the Workers' Compensation Law.
    * If the health care provider does not already have a user ID and password to submit claim forms from the Board's web site, he/she must register and a user ID and password will be assigned to them. This process may take up to a week.
    * Upon successful submission, the health care provider will be provided with a printable PDF version of the form to keep for their records and to be used to send required copies of Form EC-4.2 and any attachments to the insurance carrier and to the patient's attorney or licensed representative if he/she has one, or to the patient if unrepresented. The form should not be mailed to the Board.
