A Win for Injured Workers

On January 21, 2020 Governor Phil Murphy signed The New Jersey Collection Practices Bill. This bill will provide important protection for workers’ compensation claimants by prohibiting health care providers from reporting certain workers’ compensation medical charges and past due medical bills to collection and credit agencies.
