H&W Publishes White Paper About WCB OnBoard Prior Authorization Requests (PAR)

In 2022, the Board has overhauled the process for health providers to request prior authorization for treatment as well as the process for employers, carriers, and administrators to respond to these requests. The Workers’ Compensation Board's project to do this is called "OnBoard" and the Board has now completed its initial rollout of the project, which is designed to transition payers and health care providers from paper-based processes to online processes. Our white paper discusses the Board’s prior authorization request (“PAR”) process. PARs generally apply to requests for medical treatment that fall outside of the Board’s Medical Treatment Guidelines. You can download it here
