OhioBWC - Basics:  What is an additional condition or a subsequent decision?

What is an additional condition or a subsequent decision?

An additional condition or disease may be allowed subsequent to the initial allowance if there is evidence to support a causal relationship between the allowed injury and the new condition or disease.

Subsequent decisions are made after the initial decision of the claim. These decisions are a result of issues that have either been requested by a party to the claim or those that BWC is addressing via an administrator’s motion.

Requests for action are categorized as either a formal request or an informal request and can be submitted by a party to the claim or an external party (e.g. IC, managed care organization, etc.). Requests can be submitted on BWC or IC applications, by letter, phone, in person or electronically.
