Beginning in December 2010, the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board began using new Medical Treatment Guidelines. The MTG program includes four comprehensive, evidence based guidelines for the treatment of injuries and illnesses involving the neck, back, shoulder and knee. These guidelines were the mandatory standard of care for dates of service on or after December 1, 2010. On March 1, 2013, the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Guidelines, updated versions of the current MTGs and a new maintenance care program were adopted.
