The committee meets regularly with Workers' Compensation Division to provide advice to the director on matters relating to the provision of medical care to workers. Members of the committee include representatives of the types of health care providers that are most representative of those providing medical care services to injured workers. The committee also includes one insurer representative, one employer representative, one worker representative, and one managed-care organization representative. The director may appoint other persons as may be determined necessary to carry out the purpose of the committee.
