DWC proposes changes to death benefits rules

The amendments and new section will allow eligible beneficiaries to file claims for death benefits with DWC or an insurance carrier and clarifies the insurance carrier’s duty for recordkeeping and notifying DWC. The rules are necessary to implement changes in the law made by House Bill 2314 during the 88th Texas Legislature.

DWC finalizes the Medical Quality Review process

On June 20, 2023, DWC requested comments from workers’ compensation system participants on the proposed Medical Quality Review (MQR) process. The MQR process is a medical case
review based on a written complaint, which may include an internal referral, a plan-based
audit, or monitoring resulting from a consent order. The MQR process is approved.

DWC will review all sections in chapters 102-116 in Title 28, Texas Administrative Code. DWC is accepting public comments on whether the reasons for initially adopting these
rules continue to exist, and whether these rules should be repealed, readopted, or
readopted with amendments in accordance with Texas Government Code §2001.039.
