BOD Decision – 2008/03/19-04 – Revised Effective Dates for Policy Packages
At the March 19, 2008 meeting, the Board of Directors approved amendments to the effective dates of previously approved policy amendment packages. Policy changes relating to Workplace Status in the Assessment Manual, Compensation of Principals policies in the Assessment Manual and Rehabilitation Services & Claims Manual and Chapter 3 of the Rehabilitation Services & Claims Manual, Volume II were approved by the Board of Directors in 2007, with effective dates of January 1, 2009.
The January 1, 2009 effective dates were intended to allow sufficient time for the Claims Management Solutions (“CMS”) Systems to be developed, implemented and tested before the policy changes took effect.
Due to revisions to the CMS Systems implementation timeline, the Board of Directors revised the effective dates of the Workplace Status and Chapter 3 policy changes to January 1, 2010.
