The Medical Services Review Board (MSRB) was created in 1983 by Minnesota Statutes 176.103. The MSRB is composed of two chiropractic representatives, one hospital administrator representative, one registered nurse, one physical therapist, one occupational therapist, six physicians of different specialties, one employee representative, one employer/insurer representative and one general public representative. The current MSRB chairperson is Beth Baker, M.D.

Under M.S. 176.103, the MSRB advises the department about workers' compensation medical issues; is the liaison between the department and the medical-provider community; and supports and engages in the education of the provider community about workers' compensation. The MSRB also has the authority to sanction a medical provider after a hearing at the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) if there has been a violation of the workers' compensation statutes or rules.
By statute, the MSRB is a separate entity from the department. However, the department supplies all required administrative support to the board.
The MSRB meets quarterly in the Minnesota Room at the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry. See the current meeting schedule below. For more information, contact Carrie Rohling via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at (651) 284-5018.
