Medical Fee Schedule
The Medical Services and Fee Schedule Section administers the Kansas Department of Labor’s Workers Compensation Division’s fee schedule for provision of medical services to injured workers. The section revises the fee schedule on a biennial basis to assure that the fee schedule is reasonable and promotes health care cost containment, yet ensures the availability of necessary treatment and care for injured employees.
This section also administers a plan for health care services utilization and peer review, and reviews disputed charges or services rendered by health care providers. The Medical Services and Fee Schedule Section functions as a liaison between health care providers, attorneys, employers, employees and insurance carriers or self-insured businesses.
