Subsection 36(2) of the Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the "Act") specifies that the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) has the authority and discretion to determine the necessity, character and sufficiency of health care assistance.
Subsection 37(2) of the Act states that YWCHSB may permit the use of alternative treatment options desired by workers in the treatment of work-related injuries.
This policy establishes when YWCHSB may waive YWCHSB policy RE-03, "Mitigation of Loss", in order to permit an injured worker to use alternative treatment; the objective is to ensure that the worker’s recovery is promoted and not delayed by such treatments.
Treatments that meet the criteria established under YWCHSB policy HC-01, "Overview: Provision of Health Care Assistance" fall outside the scope of this policy, such as treatments that are verified through current evidence-based guidelines, are supervised by a medical practitioner, and meet other requirements as set out policy HC-01.
