New BWC Rule for Concussion-Related Injuries

Last month, a new Ohio workers’ compensation rule became effective with respect to the payment for treatment of concussion-related injuries. OMA Connections Partner Roetzel reports the BWC’s new rule means “medical treatment for head related injuries that are suspect or minimal in nature — and which would have likely not been approved for medical treatment related to a concussion diagnosis prior to the enactment of the new rule — will now most likely be treated with less scrutiny by the BWC and be authorized for medical treatment.” 2/3/2020
