UR Nation Adding Treatment Guidelines to State By State Resources

| | Utilization Review

UR Nation is adding each state’s workers’ compensation medical treatment guidelines to the State By State Resources. Each state’s guidelines have been placed into one of six categories: Neck & Upper Back, Lower Back, Upper Limb, Lower Limb, Chronic Pain and Other – our catch-all for any outliers. For those states that utilize a commercial guideline, UR Nation will provide section titles and links to the guidelines but please be aware that a subscription may be necessary. For now, take a look at the Washington state, Minnesota and Louisiana pages to see what we’ve done.
