At the September 16, 2009 meeting, the Board of Directors approved amendments to the effective date of the policy changes to Chapter 3 of the Rehabilitation Services & Claims Manual, Volume II to July 1, 2010 to ensure that there would be sufficient resources available to successfully implement the changes.

Change to Chapter 3 were originally approved by the Board of Directors in 2007, with an initial effective date of January 1, 2009 (see BOD Decision 2007/10/04-04).

Due to revisions to the CMS Systems implementation timeline, at its March 2008 meeting the Board of Directors revised the effective date for the Chapter 3 policy changes to January 1, 2010 (see BOD Decision 2008/03/19-04)

The new Chapter 3 effective date of July 1, 2010 will allow sufficient time for the Worker and Employer Services Division to make the systems changes and undertake the staff training necessary to implement the policy changes.
