Section 36 of the Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the Act) states that the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) may provide payment for health care assistance. The Act further provides the YWCHSB with the authority and discretion to determine the necessity, character and sufficiency of health care assistance.
This policy outlines the fundamental guiding principles for the provision and authorization of appropriate health care assistance that is consistent with accepted practice within the health care community.
