Oregon: Division to work toward permanent rate for orthotic services
The Workers' Compensation Division issued temporary rules returning payment criteria for orthotic and prosthetic services to their pre-April 1 status.
The rules state that unless otherwise provided by contract, the insurer must pay the fee for orthotic and prosthetic services at the provider's usual rate. The rule went into effect on July 5 and expires on Dec. 31. The division will work with stakeholders to replace the temporary rules with a permanent one by Jan. 1, 2012.
