The North Carolina Industrial Commission’s new Rules for the Utilization of Opioids, Related Prescriptions, and Pain Management in Workers’ Compensation Claims became effective as of May 1, 2018.

In order to assist all stakeholders in the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation system in understanding and implementing these Rules, the Commission published a Companion Guide, which contains additional guidelines established by the Commission that are not contained in but are intended to complement the Rules.

Please contact your Hedrick Gardner attorney with questions about the Rules.
