PUBLIC NOTICE OF PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE RULES, REGULATIONS AND
FEE SCHEDULE OF THE WYOMING WORKERS’ COMPENSATION DIVISION
PUBLIC NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Wyoming Workers’ Compensation Division
proposes changes that will affect the Division’s rules, regulations and fee schedule. These
proposals include modifications to the Wyoming Workers’ Compensation Rules, Regulations and
Wyoming Workers’ Compensation Chapter 9 – Fee Schedules rules were last updated on 5/23/18.
The Division updates the fee schedules and the rules each year to adopt the most recent codes
published by the American Medical Association (AMA) and Optum 360. Fee schedules are a
cost containment strategy as well as ensuring our injured workers can obtain quality health care
and our health care providers are reimbursed at a fair rate.
The Division is proposing to adopt the 2019 fee schedule, effective 1/1/19. Section 1 – General
Guidelines and Section 2 – Fee Schedules – includes incorporation by reference language to
adopt the most recent editions of the Relative Values for Physicians and the Relative Values for
Dentists fee schedules.
Specific changes include:
- Deleting code 64508 on Table A as it is no longer a valid code
- Update the 2018 dates to 2019 with the exception of 2015 effective date in
Section 4 – Fees for Supplies, Implants, Durable Medical Equipment (DME), Orthotics and
- Revising Section 3 – Fees for Home Health Nursing – clarified this section by
dividing it into two sections: home health nursing services provided by Medicare/Medicaid
certified agencies, paid by “per visit” and private duty services/attendant care, paid by “hourly
rate”. With these changes, Wyoming Workers’ Compensation is moving toward industry
standards of billing for home healthcare. Industry practice pays the home healthcare worker a
determined amount per visit.
Minor formatting updates or corrections were completed also.
Written comments should be submitted to the following address by July 1, 2019.
