Medical Fee Schedules

Medical Services Provider Manual (MSPM)

Any appropriately licensed medical provider who is authorized by the employer or insurance carrier may treat workers' compensation claimants. The Medical Services Provider Manual (MSPM) outlines billing and payment policy for physicians and other health care professionals and provides the current schedule of fees. The MSPM does not cover hospital charges, general dental, or services rendered outside of South Carolina.

At the Business Meeting on March 11,2024, the Commission approved the Conversion Factor of $51.50 for professional services. The changes also include adopting the 2024 CMS CPT/HCPS codes. 

The effective date of the updated MSPM is April 1, 2024.
