PHYSICIANS’ AND PHARMACEUTICAL FEE SCHEDULE UPDATE
Since 1925, when the Arizona Legislature passed the state’s first Workers’ Compensation Act, the Commission has administered Arizona’s workers’ compensation program. Under A.R.S. § 23-908(B), the Commission is required to “fix a schedule of fees to be charged to physicians, physical therapists or occupational therapists attending injured employees and . . . for prescription medicines required to treat an injured employee” and to “annually review the schedule of fees.” Under § 23-908(B), the schedule of fees may include “other reimbursement guidelines for medications dispensed in settings that are not accessible to the general public.”
The Industrial Commission of Arizona (ICA) reviews all of the codes in the Physicians’ and Pharmaceutical Fee Schedule (Fee Schedule) annually and engages in a process to make appropriate updates. Updates to the Fee Schedule are effective on October 1 of each corresponding year. For more information on the process to update the Fee Schedule, please refer to the Fee Schedule FAQs.
