Recently, health care providers have started receiving letters from the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board.
Workers’ Compensation Board has initiated a registration process to update and maintain a list of medical providers who are authorized to treat injured workers. Authorized providers are required to register with the board and update their office address(es) and contact information by December 29, 2017.
Medical providers who have not registered by December 29, 2017 will:
• be removed from the public directory of authorizes providers;
• become ineligible for the Board’s disputed bill process.
How to register
The board will use the existing New York State health Commerce System (HCS) for this registration process.
For the initial registration and for future updates to your practice information, you will need to create an HCS account if you currently do not have one. Information on creating an account can be found on the New York State Department of Health website.
If you are unsure whether you already have an HCS account or not, contact the Commerce Account Management Unit (CAMU) at (866) 529-1890. For general questions about health care provider registration, please contact New York State Workers’ Compensation Board Customer Support at (844) 337-6305.
