  2. The WCB pays per page for Narrative Reports (3026) or, with approval from the WCB, the physician's hourly rate.
  3. When a physician is required to see a patient on more than one occasion but does not submit a doctor's progress report (or opioid management report) for that visit, the physician is entitled to claim the admin fee (5562).
  4. Where an anesthetist or physiatrist performs approved pain management injections or surgical procedures, the WCB pays the anesthetist or physiatrist an admin fee (5562). The admin fee will be paid per injured worker unless procedures for the same injured worker are at least 90 days apart. After 90 days, the additional admin fee may be charged.
