Upcoming Meeting Information
2017 VSIA ANNUAL MEETINGTHE VIRGINIA SELF-INSURERS ASSOCIATION, INC. (VSIA)
12/13/2017 through 12/14/2017
Omni Richmond Hotel -- Richmond, VA
This year's Annual Meeting features an information-packed workers' compensation educational program with national and state experts and Virginia's three workers' compensation commissioners discussing numerous important issues that are now arising under Virginia's workers' compensation system. Virginia's first workers' compensation medical fee schedule becomes effective on January 1st of next year. Prices paid for workers' compensation medical services will then depend on proper coding, bill review, and how disputes are resolved at the Commission. Physician dispensing of pharmaceuticals, a major cost issue in other states, may be heading that way in Virginia. The long-standing statutory definition of "injury" under Virginia's Workers' Compensation Act is being eroded by important recent court decisions. Come hear these experts discuss:
MEDICAL CODING AND BILL REVIEW - THE NEW FRONTIER IN
VIRGINIA WORKERS' COMPENSATION AFTER DECEMBER 31, 2017 AND WHY IT WILL BE SO
