  • Lawmakers Must Protect Injured Workers' Access to Care

    Workers Comp WEB

    ISMS, along with other Illinois health care professionals and hospitals, is urging lawmakers to preserve access to care for injured patients under the workers’ compensation system.

    Our legislative team is busy in Springfield educating legislators on how reimbursement cuts could jeopardize access to quality care for injured workers.

    As the spring 2016 legislative session nears adjournment, lawmakers may again take action on workers’ comp – which could include further reductions to reimbursements for health care professionals and hospitals. Legislation enacted in 2011 slashed medical fees for health care professionals and hospitals by 30 percent!

    Physicians who are on the front lines providing care must be “at the table” and part of any process making changes to workers’ compensation laws.
