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. 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, MSRB is a separate entity from the department. However, the department supplies all required administrative support to the board.
MSRB meets quarterly, from 4 to 6 p.m., via Webex. The meeting schedule, agendas and minutes are below. For more information or to be added to the email list for meeting notices, contact Anita Hess at email@example.com or 651-284-5567.
