The new Medical-Legal Fee Schedule went into effect on April 1, 2021.  Due to the new requirements to designate the number of pages of records being submitted and to declare this under penalty of perjury, there will likely be problems early on.  This will especially be true for those evaluations that are scheduled in April and in which records have already been submitted to the doctors.  

It is in everyone's best interests to ensure that the declarations are provided to the doctors.  The regulations do indicate that a doctor may not bill for reviewing records without the declaration and attestation.  If necessary, evaluations can be moved out to ensure that the appropriate declarations and attestations are completed.
