What are a medical care provider’s obligations under Paid Family Leave?
Care providers will be required to certify that an employee’s request for Paid Family Leave is medically justified.
What does an out of state or out of country medical provider need to provide in order to certify that the care recipient has a serious health condition?
Out-of-state or out-of-country health care providers who are certifying that an employee's request for Paid Family Leave is medically justified, must have a valid license where they practice. The health care provider will need to provide written documentation to the employee about the state or country where they are licensed and provide their license number. The health care provider will also need to provide a description of their medical specialty.
If in the United States, the health care provider will also need to provide the ICD 10 primary and secondary codes detailing the diagnosis of a serious health condition. If the health care provider is not in the United States, a sufficient diagnosis description may be permissible.
