It’s generally pretty nice when somebody asks you for advice. It means they trust your opinion and believe you’ll have offer some much-needed insight.
To that end, the Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation (TDI-DWC) wants your help in developing a Designated Doctor Plan-Based Audit to review the quality of reports created by physicians designated to individual workers’ comp cases. The audits also will review whether additional testing and/or referrals ordered by that physician are necessary.
The document sets the scope, methodology, selection criteria, and roles and responsibilities of a plan-based audit, which is part of TDI-DWC's 2017 Medical Quality Review Annual Audit Plan.
If you participate in the workers' comp program and have ideas on how such an audit should be carried out, check out the proposed audit on the TDI's website.
But time is running out. You've only got until 5 pm CT Oct. 4 to email your suggestions.
