Abstract/Citation: Amends Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act by: providing that the district jurisdictional boundries would be changed by direct notice to affected parties; eliminating the requirement for using certified mail in most circumstances; clarifying that the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs fee schedule would be used to determine the reasonable and customary medical charge where there is a dispute; and modifying the requirement that an employer with geographically different work sites within one compensation district have only one insurance carrier.
