The division plans to reorganize the rules, remove outdated information, and revise the language. Draft rules will be sent to the committee for comments. The division intends to meet with the committee in July, after the International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions issues an updated EDI implementation guide for proof of coverage.
Request for reconsideration forms.
The Workers' Compensation Divisions reminds workers and insurers to use the division's forms to request reconsideration of a notice of closure. The form and supporting information should be submitted to the appellate review unit. A worker represented by an attorney must attach a signed retainer agreement to the request for reconsideration.
