The Medical Services Review Board (MSRB) is composed of two chiropractic representatives, one hospital representative, one registered nurse, one physical therapist, one occupational therapist, six physicians of different specialties, one employee representative and one employer/insurer representative.

The MSRB advises the department about workers' compensation medical issues; is the liaison between the department and the medical-provider community; and supports and engages in the education of the provider community about workers' compensation. The MSRB also has the authority to sanction a medical provider after a hearing at the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) if there has been a violation of the workers' compensation statutes or rules.

By statute, the MSRB is a separate entity from the department. However, the department supplies all required administrative support to the board.

The MSRB meets quarterly, from 4 to 6 p.m., in the Minnesota Room at the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry. See the current meeting schedule below. Some members may participate by telephone. If so, members of the public may also monitor the meeting electronically by telephone. For more information or to be added to the email list for meeting notices, contact Anita Hess at anita.hess@state.mn.us or 651-284-5567. People on the email list for meeting notices may also receive periodic updates from the department about workers' compensation activities.
