Rule 17 establishes Medical Treatment Guidelines. These Medical Treatment Guidelines are created by the Division of Workers' Compensation using evidence-based medicine, and they address occupational injuries that occur most frequently or incur high costs of treatment. The goal is to establish guidelines for quality care at a reasonable price. There are 9 exhibits to Rule 17 that address different areas or injuries. The guidelines are updated approximately every 5 years.
