What's New?

A new updated 2016 Physician Fee Schedule completed the regulatory process and will become effective October 7, 2016.  In addition to physician charges, it includes changes to the anesthesia time value, G codes associated with drug screening, J codes, dental codes and charges for ground and air transportation.  This updated 2016 Physician Fee Schedule may be ordered through the Department of Workers' Claims website.

COT will be replacing core network components from 6:00AM EDT until 12:00PM EDT on Sunday, September 25th.
  This work will disrupt all inbound and outbound internet traffic.  Agencies with public-facing web applications should communicate the planned outage to their constituents and offer alternatives to affected services, if possible. 

An update to this Awareness Notification will be sent once work has been completed on the 25th.
