CWCI's Claims and Medical Care Committees will hold their next member-only meeting on September 12, 2017.  The Institute's Claims and Meidcal Director, Denise Niber, will moderate the discussion.   


COMING SOON:  California's new Formulary is expected to "go live" as of January 1, 2018.  Do you want to be the first to know all of the details?  CWCI will present a webinar on October 4, 2017, from 10 - 11:30 a.m. PDT

We will show you what you should expect (and not expect) from the new Drug List.  See exactly how the Formulary will interact with the pass-through treatment requirements under SB 1160.  Learn what the time requirements are for Utilization Review for Formulary Drugs, and see what the Division of Workers' Compensation has planned for transitioning injured workers into the new Formulary.  We will also demonstrate how the Formulary is designed to work with the Medical Treatment Utilization Schedule.


CE certificates and 1.5 hours MCLE credit with Legal Specialization are available. 

Registration will open in September, so check back for full details....



CWCI's Legal Committee will hold its next member-only meeting on November 9, 2017.  The Institute's General Counsel, Ellen Sims Langille, will moderate the discussion.  The Legal Committee will be updated on the Institute's amicus activity, pending regulations, and proposed legislation.  As its most important function, the Committee will consider future amicus involvement in cases that have the potential to reshape California workers' compensation.
