New York State Workers Compensation Board no longer accepts paper applications and now requires any new Authorization to Treat or IME application to be completed online by the physician. The application process can be found here on the NYS WCB site. Please indicate Monroe County on the application as the County where to send the application. MCMS will then process the application within the 45 days and return to the NYS Workers Compensation Board for final authorization. The application must have the required documentation electronically attached for the application to be processed.
Processing Fee – The processing fee is $500 which must be received by MCMS to complete processing of all new applications. However, the fee is waived for Full-Time members of any of the following County Medical Societies: Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne or Yates.
Payment can be made payable to:
Monroe County Medical Society
200 Canal View Blvd
Rochester NY 14623
Please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org when the payment has been mailed.
Renewal applications for physicians already authorized to treat Workers Compensation patients are not processed by MCMS and therefore there is no processing fee required. Information on the renewal process can be found hereIf you have any questions, please contact Joanne Rau at (585) 473-4072.
