North Carolina workers’ comp amendments could save state $27M per year

New workers’ compensation rules set forth by the North Carolina Industrial Commission have set maximum fees for doctors and hospitals assisting those who are suffering from workplace injuries. This is expected to save the state around $27 million in annual savings.

The agency announced last Monday, February 23 that the new fee schedules will commence on April 1. On July 1, medical care access is expected to increase for those who have been hurt in workplace accidents, although the agency did not outline the specifics on how this is expected to occur.
