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”.
Oklahoma lawmakers have passed legislation to allow for the coverage of chiropractic treatment in workers compensation.
Bipartisan bill S.B. 1375, sponsored by Republican Sen. Kim David and Democratic Sen. Kay Floyd, unanimously passed the state’s House on Monday. The bill unanimously passed the Senate on March 10.
The bill would amend the state’s Administrative Workers Compensation Act to add chiropractic services to the list of allowable medical treatment under the state’s fee schedule and authorize licensed chiropractors to the list of other medical providers authorized to treat injured workers. Like physicians, under the legislation the employer would have the right to choose the treating chiropractor.
If signed into law, the legislation will take effect Nov. 1, 2020.
