Christian Petrucci,

The notice of temporary compensation payable (NTCP) and its use has always been the topic of much debate since its inception. While the document was originally created to enable an employer to contest truly questionable claims, it has become almost the only document ever issued at the beginning of a case, thereby allowing the employer to retain control of the claim for 90 days, even in cases where liability is not in question in any way. Until the legislature addresses what many consider to be blatant abuse of the system and the NTCP, it is important to consider under what circumstances an NTCP converts into a permanent claim. While beyond the scope of this article, the workers’ compensation automation and integration system (WCAIS) has dramatically added much drama to the NTCP conversion scenario since it is often difficult for adjusters to issue the appropriate documents, and the mail is no longer a component in the equation.
