Medical Fee Schedule
The MFS applies to all medical services, equipment or supplies and is applicable to all injured employees claiming workers’ compensation benefits under Tennessee’s workers’ compensation law, no matter where the injury took place. An absolute fee for services is not set, but rather, a maximum amount that may be paid.
Medical Advisory Committee
Created from the 2013 Worker' Compensation Reform Act, the Medial Advisory Committee (MAC) provides guidance to the administrator on issues related to the effective and efficient treatment of injured workers as well as the proper source of reference for determining permanent impairment ratings.
Medical Payment Committee
Comprised of seven voting members, appointed by the administrator, the committee hears disputes on medical bill payments between providers and insurers and advise the administrator on issues relating to the medical fee schedule and medical care cost containment in the workers’ compensation system.
