State Adopts Drug Formulary For Workers’ Compensation System
In May 2017, the Montana Legislature passed SB312, authorizing the Montana Department of Labor & Industry (DOLI) to adopt a drug formulary for the workers’ compensation system. The formulary will work in conjunction with the Montana Utilization & Treatment Guidelines and is intended to provide uniformity in prescribing medications to injured workers. This new drug formulary will affect claims arising on or after April 1, 2019.
To educate providers, MSF and DOLI are holding two informative drug formulary medical forums in December.
December 12 – Helena: Webinar hosted at Montana State Fund – 11:30 am – 1:00 pm. (More details coming soon)
December 18 – Great Falls: Holiday Inn (1100 5th Street) 11:30 am – 1:00 pm.
