Maryland: Comp commission takes next step for settlement agreement guidelines
The Workers' Compensation Commission has proposed legislation to establish guidelines for reviewing and approving proposed workers' compensation settlement agreements in compliance with the review thresholds established by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
The legislation would also enumerate the data elements that must be contained within the body of all settlement agreements, such as the claimant's average weekly wage, date of birth, and the total amount of indemnity benefits paid to the claimant. For full text of the proposed changes, visit www.wcc.state.md.us/PDF/Regs/14.09.01.19_blackline.pdf.
