* 120% WCA Fee Schedule or three times the Medicare Fee Schedule when WCA is not available. (If neither fee is available then usual and customary fees are established.)
**Part of the Rhode Island State Exchange Program.
(1)
The Town of Barrington's fee schedule should be automatically reviewed and increased yearly by The Dawson Group to at least three times the Medicare fee schedule or 120% of the Rhode Island Workers Compensation Fee Schedule when Medicare has no established fee schedule for a procedure code
(2)
This is a sample of codes. Codes may change or be added as needed to insure accurate coding and billing. TDG should use the same formula (three times the Medicare fee schedule or 120% of the Rhode Island Workers Compensation Fee Schedule when Medicare has no established fee schedule for a code) when implementing additional codes.
