2019 Illinois Workers Compensation Commission Fee Schedule Released

The Illinois Workers Compensation Commission has published a new fee schedule for 2019. The fee schedule may be accessed at:  https://iwcc.optum.com/download.asp.

Non-hospital owned outpatient PTs will want to select Professional Services under the Non-hospital Fee Schedules and narrow search to the 97000-97999 series of codes.

Fee Schedule Adjustments
The workers comp fee schedule is adjusted annually to reflect inflation; it increased a small amount again for 2019.  These are the fees providers of professional services are required to be paid under workers compensation insurance in Illinois. Illinois is divided into four regions with prices varying across the regions.

Negotiating for Lower Pay
Physical therapists should carefully consider the full cost of providing care before negotiating for lower payment agreements with payors who may offer incentives such as patient referrals or faster turnaround of claims/payment.  Management companies may also limit the number of authorized visits.
