By Holland Ferguson

The North Carolina Industrial Commission enacted rule changes effective Dec. 1, 2018.  The Commission issued a one-page overview of these changes.  In this one-page overview, the Commission highlighted the changes for filing medical motions and the requirement for insurance carriers, third-party administrators, and self-insured employers to have a primary contact person designated for all workers’ compensation matters.  That person’s contact information must be submitted to the Commission annually on July 1.  A copy of the annotated rule changes can be found here.
