Section 21 of the Workers Compensation Act, grants authority to WorkSafeBC for determining the necessity, character, and sufficiency of all health care provided to injured workers. A list of all health care services and goods deemed medically necessary is compiled in the Goods and Services Registry (GSR). This list is managed and maintained by WorkSafeBC’s Health Care Services. To determine the appropriateness of additions, changes, or deletions to the GSR, an inter-divisional committee, the Medical Technology Assessment Committee (MTAC), has been formed.
Comprised of members representing Health Care Services, the Health Intelligence Unit, Clinical Services (WES), and the Evidence-Based Practice Group, the MTAC has the mandate of reviewing suggested changes to the health care goods and services defined in the GSR.
All health care services delivered to WorkSafeBC injured workers must meet the criteria of being cost-effective, accessible, service-driven, evidence-based, and result-focused.
