Statement from TN Bureau of Workers' Compensation

Monday, April 01, 2019 | 12:28pm

Abbie Hudgens, Administrator for the Tennessee Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, announces today that the Rules of the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development, Bureau of Workers' Compensation will no longer be construed to limit the amounts that air ambulance service providers can recover.  This change is due to adverse court rulings in other states that involve similar provisions as well as the current state of federal law.  As a result of the Bureau’s revised interpretation, air ambulance service providers will no longer be limited by the rules’ fee schedules.
