New Drug Testing Medical Policy

August 2018

WSI recently published a new medical policy regarding definitive drug testing requirements. This policy identifies the circumstances for which WSI requires a provider to conduct definitive drug testing, and explains WSI’s position on reimbursement of medical services for non-compliance with the requirements outlined in the policy. Resources used to develop the policy include the Work Loss Data Institute’s Official Disability Guidelines (ODG) and North Dakota Administrative Code § 92-01-02-31.5(c).
