New Drug Formulary
November 14, 2019
The NYS WCB recently implemented a Prescription Drug Formulary, which lists the medications eligible for reimbursement under a claimant’s workers' comp medical coverage. Beginning December 5, 2019, all new prescriptions for injured workers must comply with the requirements of the Formulary. Beginning June 5, 2020, all refills and renewals must comply with the Formulary. We urge claimants to discuss their medications with their health care providers to determine if their medication is reimbursable under their workers’ comp medical coverage and make appropriate changes as necessary. For more information, visit the WCB Formulary website.

New Notification CenterAugust 1, 2019
NYSIF is pleased to announce its new Notification Center, which will make it easier for representatives to manage email notifications for their workers' comp clients’ policy documents and audits. We've also added a new option to broker accounts, allowing reps to enroll to receive a notification when premium bills are issued to clients. Workers' compensation policyholders can also benefit from this new enhancement to help manage email notifications for their policy documents.
We encourage brokers and policyholders to log in or create an online account to take advantage of these new features.
