The Commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Workers’ Claims (DWC) has promulgated an administrative regulation (803 KAR 25:270) adopting the ODG by MCG Health pharmaceutical formulary for use in the treatment of work-related injuries and occupational disease. The establishment of a formulary was mandated by House Bill 2 of the 2018 session of the General Assembly. Drugs listed in the formulary are assigned “Y” or “N” status. Drugs assigned “Y” status may be dispensed without preauthorization and do not require utilization review. Drugs assigned “N” status require preauthorization.
