Tennessee Treatment Guidelines and Drug Formulary Update

by Helios | Jan 28, 2016
On Wednesday afternoon, January 27, the Tennessee Legislature Joint Government Operations Committee held a rule review hearing and unanimously voted a “positive recommendation” for the Drug Formulary and Treatment Guidelines rule submitted by the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. The positive recommendation by the Committee confirms that the rule will be effective on February 28, 2016. For information on the provisions of the rule, see our recently published Government Affairs Alert.

We also learned during the rule hearing that the Bureau is working on updating their utilization review rules. We will monitor that effort and provide details as they become available. If you are interested in participating in that rule development process, you may contact the Bureau via email at
