March 1: WCB Announced New Approach to Multidisciplinary Health Services
WCB Nova Scotia announced a new strategic partnership with one healthcare provider to ensure consistent, focused care for injured workers who need more advanced treatment for work-related sprain and strain injuries. Services will be delivered by CBI Health Group clinics and a number of their affiliates in a province-wide network that has clinics in all regions. The new arrangement will become effective later this spring for new referrals of injured workers requiring Tier 2/3 care. All injured workers already receiving Tier 2/3 care will complete their treatments with existing clinics.
