HB14-1278 - Sunset Work Comp Physician Accreditation Program

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning Continuation Of The Workers' Compensation Accreditation Program Administered By The Division Of Workers' Compensation, And, In Connection Therewith, Implementing The Recommendations Of The 2013 Sunset Report By The Department Of Regulatory Agencies.

Sunset Process - House Business, Labor, Economic, and Workforce Development Committee. The bill implements the recommendations of the sunset review and report on the workers' compensation accreditation program (WCAP) for medical professionals, administered by the division of workers' compensation in the department of labor and employment, by:

  • Continuing the program for 11 years, until 2025 ( Sections 1 and 2 );
  • Directing the division to study whether Colorado should adopt an edition of the American Medical Association's guide to the evaluation of permanent impairment more recent than the 1991 edition, which is the edition currently specified by statute, as the standard that governs assessments of the degree of impairment in workers' compensation cases ( Section 3 ); and
  • Allowing the division to set fees for WCAP training programs and materials administratively rather than specifying the amount of the fees in statute ( Section 4 ).
