Texas: Amendments align health care rules
The Division of Workers' Compensation proposed amendments to rules regarding general medical provisions, pre-authorization, concurrent utilization review, and voluntary certification of health care.
The rule changes harmonize the rules with proposed amendments to the law brought by the Department of Insurance. The proposed rules also conform to other rule or statutory changes or current agency policy. Once the rules are adopted, the division plans to eliminate the explanation of benefits form. A public hearing is scheduled for Sept. 15 at 1:30 p.m. in the Tippy Foster Room at 7551 Metro Center Drive, Suite 100 in Austin. Public comments can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org until Sept. 27.
