Purpose

The purpose of this rulemaking is to update the Medical Aid Rules rates for most professional health care services for injured workers. These rules are updated continually to follow the established methodologies of L&I and maintain consistency with the Health Care Authority and Medicaid Purchasing Administration. This rulemaking will (1) increase the conversion factor used to calculate payment for anesthesia services; and (2) increase the maximum daily payment for physical and occupational therapy.
