The California Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) recently announced that providers will now have free online access to California’s Medical Treatment Utilization Schedule (MTUS) guidelines for treating injured workers through MDGuidelines: CA MTUS-ACOEM Edition.
The MTUS guidelines are based on the principles of evidence-based medicine and treatment guidelines developed by the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM).
Providers were previously required to obtain a commercial license to access the guidelines. While registration is still required, access is now free to all California providers.
The site also includes online training webinars and instructions.
