Medical Services Provider Manual
Any appropriately-licensed medical provider who is authorized by the employer or insurance carrier may treat workers' compensation claimants. The Medical Services Provider Manual (MSPM) outlines billing and payment policy for physicians and other health care professionals and provides the current schedule of fees. The fee schedule does not cover hospital charges, general dental, EMS Services, Emergency Air Transportation, or services rendered outside of South Carolina.
At the August 15, 2016 business meeting, the Commission approved a revision to the MSPM to reflect 2016 Resource Based Relative Values (RBRVS) issued by the Center for Medicare/Medicaid (CMS) and the American Medical Association's current Procedural Terminology (CPT) Codes. Included in the approval is a Conversion Factor of $50 and no change to the Maximum Allowable Payments (MAP) for an Independent Medical Examination (IME). The IME fee will remain rated as Individual Consideration. The effective date is September 1, 2016.
