Concord, NH (CompNewsNetwork) - As of July 1, 2010, HB271 inserts new language in RSA 281-A:23, V(a), affecting medical records in workers' compensation cases.

First, there is now mandatory language to be included in every request for medical records:

"This request is strictly limited to medical information relevant to the occupational injury or illness that underlies the patient's workers' compensation claim, including any past history of complaints of, or treatment of, a condition similar to that presented in the claim"

This languange must appear in bold print, in a font size two points larger than used in the request.

Second, carriers and self-insureds must not send on irrelevant medical records to others, even if received in error, or else face a penalty up to $2,500.
