OTA Workers Comp Bill Stalled in Assembly

The OTA Workers Comp Bill Has Stalled in the Assembly.

Senator Tim Kennedy championed the bill in the Senate, achieving passage in that chamber for the first time.

However, the Assembly, who has passed the bill for two years straight, suddenly held the bill this year.

Their explanation was that the Workers Comp provider system is already overwhelmed with a new method for authorizing existing treatment providers, so adding new providers would only strain the new system further.

NYSOTA will meet with key stakeholders over the off session and continue to push for insurance coverage of Workers Comp services provided by OTAs.
