News and highlights

DWC readopts sections of Texas Administrative Code

DWC readopts all sections in 28 Texas Administrative Code Chapters 120, 122, and 124. State agencies are required to review rules every four years and either readopt, readopt with amendments, or repeal the rule.

Adopted rule on medical billing complaints

DWC has adopted amendments to 28 Texas Administrative Code Section 180.2, concerning filing a complaint. The amendments ensure that no health care provider or agent can use DWC’s complaint process to bypass the medical fee dispute resolution filing deadline in 28 TAC Section 133.307(c). The restriction does not apply to a health care provider submitting a complaint under Insurance Code Chapter 1305.

Preventative treatment claims handling

DWC has issued a memo reminding insurance carriers about rules associated with preventative treatment related to a physical injury and workers’ compensation claims handling.
