Medical Treatment Guidelines
(LAC 40:I.2519, 2701, 2705, 2707,
2718, 5101, 5113, 5315, and 5399)

The Louisiana Workforce Commission has exercised the emergency provision in accordance with R.S. 49:953(B), the Administrative Procedure Act to amend certain portions of the Medical Guidelines contained in the Louisiana Administrative Code, Title 40, Labor and Employment, Part I, Workers’ Compensation Administration, Subpart 2, Medical Guidelines, Chapters 25-53. This Emergency Rule effective October 1, 2015, will remain in effect for a period of 120 days.

This amendment is required to stay in compliance with the federal Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014. The transition to ICD-10 is required for everyone covered by the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA). Department of Health and Human Services set the compliance date for October 1, 2015. This does not affect CPT coding for outpatient procedures and physician services.

The department considers emergency action necessary to facilitate an efficient and timely transition to ICD-10 medical coding, pending enactment of a rule through regular administrative procedure. Notice is hereby given, in accordance with R.S. 49:950, et seq., that the Louisiana Workforce Commission, Office of Workers’ Compensation, pursuant to authority vested in the Director of the Office of Workers’ Compensation by R.S. 23:1291 and 23:1310.1, and in accordance with applicable provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act, proposes to amend LAC 40:I., Subpart 2, Chapters 25-53.
