Learn about when a Medical Review Panel can be considered and the information that is required from the worker and the worker’s physician.
If an injured worker has already received a decision from the appeals department and from the Board Appeal Tribunal and they have a medical question with which they disagree, they may be eligible for a Medical Review Panel. A Medical Review Panel cannot be arranged for those that have a question that is adjudicative in nature. A Medical Review Panel is a panel of health care practitioners and it is the final step in the appeal process. The panel’s decision is binding on the worker and on us.
Only an injured worker can ask for a Medical Review Panel after their appeal has been heard by the appeals department and the Board Appeal Tribunal (the tribunal). A Medical Review Panel is not used to appeal decisions about claim adjudication.
