BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
Prefiled legislation in Oklahoma would expand the state’s workers compensation fee schedule to include care provided by a chiropractor.
S.B. 1375, slated to be introduced Feb. 3 by Republican Sen. Kim David, would include chiropractic care among the medical surgical, hospital, optometric, podiatric and nursing services outlined in the state’s workers comp statutes that must be promptly provided to an injured employee if necessary. The bill would also grant the employer the right to choose the treating chiropractor, but allows for an employee to apply for a change of chiropractor via the dispute resolution process outlined in the state’s certified workplace medical plan.
If signed into law, the legislation would take effect Nov. 1, 2020.
Lawmakers in Oklahoma this month have introduced 19 bills that would make changes to the state’s workers compensation code.
