WorkSafeNB has streamlined reporting for chiropractors by combining the Form 8C, Chiropractor’s First Report of Accident and the Form 10C Chiropractor’s Progress Report into one form. The Chiropractic Form 8-10 is for both initial visits and follow-up (progress) reports. The new form encourages practitioners to consider functional abilities of an injured worker as an alternative to placing them off work. Physician’s reporting forms have undergone a similar process. Below is an explanation of the key changes and guidelines for form completion.
At the top of the form please indicate if it is the first visit or a subsequent progress report. The Patient section is filled out in the usual manner. Please note the revised gender options.
The Clinical Report section has many tick boxes to streamline the process. Concussion/mTBI has been added as it is not uncommon for it to be part of an injury profile. Further details in this section are as follows:
The information in the Employer Note section will be provided to the patient who will give it to their employer. Please consider modified duties as an alternative to being off work. Completion guidelines are as follows:
If you don’t have a payee number, please contact WorkSafeNB at 1 800 999-9775. Billing is according to the fee schedule available on the NBCA website as well as in the NBCA-WorkSafeNB agreement. The latter also serves as an operational guideline for the management of WorkSafeNB cases.
