Physician assistants certification
Effective Jan. 2, 2008, physician assistants must certify to the Department of Consumer and Business Services director that they have reviewed and read certain informational materials provided by the Workers' Compensation Division, before they treat any patients with Oregon workers' compensation claims.
If you have not certified to the director and treat a patient with an Oregon workers' compensation claim on or after Jan. 2, 2008, the insurer will not have to pay for the services you provided.
The required materials include:
Physician Assistants' guide to Oregon on-the-job injuries
An introduction to the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine's disability prevention guidelines titled, "Preventing Needless Work Disability by Helping People Stay Employed"
The Employer-at-Injury Program (return to work) information
After you have read the above materials, complete the "Statement of Certification" online form
