MPNs; Referral to Outside Specialist. WCAB reversed WCJ's finding that applicant was in need of further medical treatment for right knee injury, including referral to sports medicine doctor outside defendant's MPN who performed medial meniscus transplants or graft procedures, and held that record did not support award of treatment outside defendant's MPN, when applicant did not follow MPN procedures for outside referral as outlined in LC 4616.3 and Rule 9768.17. See Hernandez panel decision.
Compensable Consequence Injuries. WCAB held that it had jurisdiction more than five years after applicant's knee injury to enforce prior medical treatment award and to award treatment for compensable consequence injury to low back, when WCAB found that its authority to enforce medical treatment awards is not subject in LC §§ 5410, 5803 and 5804 five-year limitation periods, and that in enforcing a general award of further medical treatment, WCAB may require employer to provide treatment for compensable consequence injury even if that condition was not part of original award and if employee first requested treatment for condition more than five years after date of original injury, based upon principle that subsequent injury relates back to original injury. See Allar panel decision.

|HOW TO ACHIEVE MEDICARE SECONDARY PAYER COMPLIANCe|
Take Control of Your Insurance Settlements With A Brand New Resource From LexisNexis!
"An excellent new book ... a one-of-a-kind resource ... [Jennifer C. Jordan's] straight-talk is much appreciated when it comes to this illusive area of the law"
There are many people who don't understand that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' approval process of a Medicare set-aside arrangement is voluntary and carries an inherent cost. In fact, many of the decisions that need to be made in a settlement negotiation are risk management decisions rather than being truly Medicare Secondary Payer-oriented. Once you understand why CMS wants what it wants, you will realize that its preference may not be the only way to achieve MSP compliance. The Complete Guide to Medicare Secondary Payer Compliance, Jennifer C. Jordan, Editor-in-Chief, will help you take control of your insurance settlements. > Read more about the contents (1,350 pages).
