The Workplace Injury Labor Management Approved Provider Committee (WILMAPC) oversees the Provider Panel, consisting of eligible approving providers for workers’ compensation claims involving Salary Continuation and Occupational Injury Leave.
The WILMAPC Provider Panel consists of medical providers that are certified by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) and are eligible to be approving providers for Salary Continuation and Occupational Injury Leave claims.
Providers interested in joining the WILMAPC Provider Panel can apply by contacting WILMAPC at 614-466-0570 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
WILMAPC Provider Panel members must:
- Be one of the seven approving provider types as recognized by the Ohio BWC:
- MD, DO, DC, DDS, DPM, PhD, DM.
- Be certified with BWC.
- Treat/bill in at least five worker’s compensation claims within the year preceding the date of application to join the panel.
- Pass a preliminary scoring assessment (based on the workers’ compensation claims in the previous year). The provider’s preliminary assessment score must be equal to or greater than the average of the existing panel members scoring in the Opportunity to Improve category.
Providers appealing their performance score must file the appeal with WILMAPC.
