Austin, TX – The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) is hosting educational sessions entitled Texas Workers’ Compensation Paper Billing Form Changes at its field offices around the state in February. This training will assist workers’ compensation system participants in complying with amendments to 28 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §133.10 regarding health care provider billing procedures that are effective for medical bills submitted on or after April 1, 2014. The rule amendments reflect the changes in the newly updated 1500 Health Insurance Claim Form Version 02/12 (CMS-1500). The recently adopted amendments also update the requirements for the UB-04, DWC Form-066, ADA 2006 Dental Claim Form, and CMS-1500 forms to align with 28 TAC §§133.200, 134.803 and 134.804.
The educational sessions are for all Texas workers’ compensation participants, including: health care providers, designated doctors, certified workers’ compensation health care networks, insurance carriers, and attorneys. The free sessions will provide information regarding:
- comparison of the old and new requirements for medical billing forms;
- deadline for using the new form and requirements;
- Medical Fee Dispute Resolution process; and
- available resources from the DWC and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
