HB 353: Occupational Disease Utilization Review Repeal/Expansion for Hepatitis C

H.B. 353, P.N. 1408 (DALLY). This would amend the Workers’ Compensation Act 338 of 1917, P.L. 736.
This would extend the definition of hepatitis C as an occupational disease to people who contract hepatitis C who are employed as a State Police officer, Capitol Police employee, Narcotics Bureau investigator, Liquor Control enforcement officer, Sheriff or Deputy Sheriff.
This would delete the use of health care utilization review to determine the reasonableness or necessity of treatment for occupational disease.
