Erwin, McCane & Daly | Monday, February 23, 2015

As of December 15, 2014, New York State has adopted and put in effect the new Non-Acute Pain Medical Treatment Guidelines.

As a part of these updated treatment guidelines, the focus is on the prescribing and treatment of non-acute pain for workers’ compensation claims. The change is aimed at helping physicians to properly prescribe opioids and other pain medications to injured workers who have long-term pain.
