The Workers’ Compensation Board (Board) has initiated a registration process to update and maintain a current list of medical providers who are authorized to treat injured workers. The goal of this process is to enable an injured worker to easily and accurately identify Board-authorized medical providers.
You will be notified in November when registration opens for Board-authorized medical providers. Authorized providers are asked to register with the Board and update their office address(es) and contact information by December 29, 2017. This registration process will be an ongoing initiative every two to three years.
Medical providers who have not registered by December 29, 2017 will:
- be removed from the public directory of Board authorized providers, and
- become ineligible for the Board's disputed bill process.
Creating an Account in the New York State Health Commerce System (HCS)
The Board will use the existing New York State Health Commerce System (HCS) for this registration process. For the initial registration and for future updates to your practice information, you will need to have an HCS account. If you don’t already have one, you can view directions to create an account on the New York State Department of Health website.
If you are not sure if you already have an HCS account, contact the Commerce Account Management unit (CAMU) at (866) 529-1890 and select option 1. For general questions about health care provider registration, please contact the Board’s Customer Support at (844) 337-6305.
We appreciate your cooperation, and please watch for the notification when registration begins.
