Feb. 1: New Pilot Program for Workers with Concussion Injuries


As of Feb. 1, 2017, any workers with new concussion injuries will be directed to one of three clinics—CORE, Lifemark and CBI—which currently treat the majority of the WCB’s concussion claims. Workers who sustained an injury prior to Feb. 1 and are currently being treated for concussion-related injuries will continue with their current service provider and treatment program. The intent is to use the pilot program to determine the appropriate resources needed for concussion management, and to create a concussion management protocol.
