PHYSICAL EXAMINATIONS OF WORKER--INDEPENDENT MEDICAL EXAMINATION--UNSANITARY OR INJURIOUS PRACTICES BY WORKER--TESTIMONY OF HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS.-- A. In the event of a dispute between the parties concerning the reasonableness or necessity of medical or surgical treatment, the date upon which maximum medical improvement was reached, the correct impairment rating for the worker, the cause of an injury or any other medical issue, if the parties cannot agree upon the use of a specific independent medical examiner, either party may petition a workers' compensation judge for permission to have the worker undergo an
11 1 independent medical examination. If a workers' compensation judge believes that an independent medical examination will assist the judge with the proper determination of any issue in the case, including the cause of the injury, the workers' compensation judge may order an independent medical examination upon the judge's own motion. The independent medical examination shall be performed immediately, pursuant to procedures adopted by the director, by a health care provider other than the designated health care provider, unless the employer and the worker otherwise agree. B. In deciding who may conduct the independent medical examination, the workers' compensation judge shall not designate the health care provider initially chosen by the petitioner. The workers' compensation judge shall designate a health care provider on the approved list of persons authorized by the committee appointed by the advisory council on workers' compensation to create that list. The decision of the workers' compensation judge shall be final. The employer shall pay for any independent medical examination. C. Only a health care provider who has treated the worker pursuant to Section -1- NMSA or the health care provider providing the independent medical examination pursuant to this section may offer testimony at any workers' compensation hearing concerning the particular injury in question
12 1 D. If, pursuant to Subsection C of Section -1- NMSA, either party selects a new health care provider, the other party shall be entitled to periodic examinations of the worker by the health care provider the [worker] other party previously selected. Examinations may not be required more frequently than at six-month intervals; except that upon application to the workers' compensation judge having jurisdiction of the claim and after reasonable cause therefor, examinations within six-month intervals may be ordered. In considering such applications, the workers' compensation judge shall exercise care to prevent harassment of the claimant. E. If an independent medical examination or an examination pursuant to Subsection D of this section is requested, the worker shall travel to the place at which the examination shall be conducted. Within thirty days after the examination, the worker shall be compensated by the employer for all necessary and reasonable expenses incidental to submitting to the examination, including the cost of travel, meals, lodging, loss of pay or other like direct expense, but the amount to be compensated for meals and lodging shall not exceed that allowed for nonsalaried public officers under the Per Diem and Mileage Act. F. No attorney shall be present at any examination authorized under this section. G. Both the employer and the worker shall be given
13 1 a copy of the report of the examination of the worker made by the independent health care provider pursuant to this section. H. If a worker fails or refuses to submit to examination in accordance with this section, the worker shall forfeit all workers' compensation benefits that would accrue or become due to the worker except for that failure or refusal to submit to examination during the period that the worker persists in such failure and refusal unless the worker is by reason of disability unable to appear for examination. I. If any worker persists in any unsanitary or injurious practice that tends to imperil, retard or impair the worker's recovery or increase the worker's disability or refuses to submit to such medical or surgical treatment as is reasonably essential to promote the worker's recovery, the workers' compensation judge may in the judge's discretion reduce or suspend the workers' compensation benefits." SECTION. Section --1. NMSA (being Laws 0 (nd S.S.), Chapter, Section ) is amended to read: "--1.. [SAFETY AND FRAUD DIVISION] ENFORCEMENT BUREAU.-- A.

The safety and fraud division shall develop a program to identify extra-hazardous employers. "Extra
14 1 hazardous employer" means an employer whose injury frequencies substantially exceed those that may reasonably be expected in that employer's business or industry. The safety and fraud division shall notify each identified extra-hazardous employer and the insurance carrier for that employer that the employer has been identified as an extra-hazardous employer. C. An employer who receives notification under Subsection B of this section must obtain a safety consultation within thirty days from the safety and fraud division, the employer's insurer or another professional source approved by the director for that purpose. The safety consultant shall file a written report with the director and the employer setting out any hazardous conditions or practices identified by the safety consultation. D. The employer in consultation with the safety consultant shall, within a reasonable time, formulate a specific accident prevention plan that addresses the hazards identified by the consultant. An employer who fails to formulate, implement or otherwise comply with the accident prevention plan shall be subject to a penalty not to exceed five thousand dollars ($,000). E.] B. The [safety and fraud division] enforcement bureau shall investigate to determine whether any fraudulent conduct relating to workers' compensation is being practiced. The [safety and fraud division] enforcement bureau shall refer
15 1 to an appropriate law enforcement agency any finding of fraud. For any claim pending in the administration, the [safety and fraud division] enforcement bureau shall also bring its findings to the attention of the workers' compensation judge assigned to that claim. [F.] C. For the purposes of this section, "fraud" includes the intentional misrepresentation of a material fact resulting in workers' compensation or occupational disablement coverage, the payment or withholding of benefits or an attempt to obtain or withhold benefits. The intentional misrepresentation of a material fact may occur through the conduct, practices, omissions or representations of any person. Any person found guilty of committing fraud shall be sentenced pursuant to the provisions of Section 0-- NMSA and the provisions of the Criminal Sentencing Act." SECTION. Section --1. NMSA (being Laws 0 (nd S.S.), Chapter, Section, as amended) is amended to read: "--1.. OMBUDSMAN PROGRAM.-- A. The director shall establish an ombudsman program to assist injured or disabled workers, persons claiming death benefits, employers and other persons in protecting their rights and obtaining information available under workers' compensation and occupational disease disablement laws. B. An ombudsman shall meet with or otherwise
16 1 provide information to injured or disabled workers, investigate complaints and communicate with employers, insurance carriers and health care providers on behalf of injured or disabled workers. An ombudsman shall otherwise assist unrepresented claimants, employers and other parties to enable them to protect their rights in the workers' compensation and occupational disease disablement system. At least one specially qualified employee in each location that the administration has an office shall be designated by the director as an ombudsman, and duties described in this section shall be that person's primary responsibility. The director may designate additional ombudsmen and assign them as [he] the director deems appropriate. C. An ombudsman need not be an attorney but shall demonstrate familiarity with workers' compensation and occupational disease disablement laws. [Any person employed as an ombudsman shall be ineligible to hold any other position in the administration for at least one year from the date of leaving the position of ombudsman.] D. An ombudsman shall not be an advocate for any person and shall restrict [his] ombudsman's activities to providing information and facilitating communication. An ombudsman shall not assist a claimant, employer or any other person in any proceeding beyond the informal conference held pursuant to Section -- NMSA
17 1 E. Each employer shall notify [his] the employer's employees of the ombudsman service in a manner prescribed by the director. The notice shall include the posting of a notice in one or more conspicuous places. The director shall also describe clearly the availability of the ombudsmen on the first report of accident form required under Section -1- NMSA l, or the first report of disablement form required under Section --1 NMSA." SECTION. Section -- NMSA (being Laws, Chapter, Section 1, as amended) is amended to read: "--. CLAIMS--INFORMAL CONFERENCES.-- A. When a dispute arises under the Workers' Compensation Act or the New Mexico Occupational Disease Disablement Law, any party may file a claim with the director no sooner than thirty-one days from the date of injury or the occurrence of the disabling disease. The director shall assist workers and employees not represented by counsel in the preparation of the claim document. B. The director shall prepare a form of claim, which shall be available to all parties. The claim shall state concisely in numbered paragraphs the questions at issue or in dispute [which] that the claimant expects to be determined with sufficient particularity that the responding or opposing party may be notified adequately of the claim and its basis, including, if applicable, the specific benefit [which] that is
18 1 due and not paid. C. Upon receipt, every claim shall be evaluated by the director or [his] the director's designee, who shall then contact all parties and attempt to informally resolve the dispute. Within sixty days after receipt of the claim, the director shall issue [his] recommendations for resolution and [provide] serve the parties with a copy [by certified mail, return receipt requested]. Within thirty days of receipt of the recommendation of the director, each party shall notify the director on a form provided by [him] the director of the acceptance or rejection of the recommendation. A party failing to notify the director waives any right to reject the recommendation and is bound conclusively by the director's recommendation unless, upon application made to the director within thirty days after the foregoing deadline, the director finds that the party's failure to notify was the result of excusable neglect. If either party makes a timely rejection of the director's recommendation, the claim shall be assigned to a workers' compensation judge for hearing. D. Each party to a dispute shall have a peremptory right to disqualify one workers' compensation judge; provided that: (1) the employer and [his] the employer's insurer shall constitute a single party for purposes of this subsection;
19 1 () this peremptory right to disqualify one worker's compensation judge shall not apply to the judge appointed pursuant to Section -1- NMSA to render a decision within seven days on a request for a different health care provider; and () no party shall be required to disqualify a workers' compensation judge until a judge has been assigned to a case." SECTION. Section -- NMSA (being Laws, Chapter, Section, as amended) is amended to read: "--. AUTHORITY OF THE DIRECTOR TO CONDUCT HEARINGS.-- [A. Hearings shall be held in the county in which the injury or disablement occurred for which the claim is being made unless the parties agree otherwise. Upon motion of a party, or upon his own motion, if he finds that good cause exists, the workers' compensation judge may order the hearing to be held in the workers' compensation administration regional office located nearest to the county in which the injury or disablement occurred or in the county identified as being in the best interests of the parties, taking into consideration cost-effectiveness, judicial efficiency, the health and mobility of the employee and the convenience of parties and witnesses.] A. Unless the parties agree otherwise, or it is ordered by the workers' compensation judge or the director in
20 1 the case of a director's hearing, hearings shall be held at an office of the workers' compensation administration that is located nearest to the location of injury or disablement. In determining the site of hearing, the judge or the director shall consider cost-effectiveness, judicial efficiency, the health and mobility of the worker and the convenience of parties and witnesses. Hearings may be conducted by videoconferencing or by telephone at the discretion of the judge or the director. B. The workers' compensation judge and the director shall have the power to preserve and enforce order during hearings; administer oaths; issue subpoenas to compel the attendance and testimony of witnesses, the production of books, papers, documents and other evidence or the taking of depositions before a designated individual competent to administer oaths; examine witnesses; enter noncriminal sanctions for misconduct; and do all things conformable to law [which] that may be necessary to enable [him] the judge or the director to discharge the duties of [his] the judge's or the director's office effectively. C. In addition to the noncriminal sanctions that may be ordered by the workers' compensation judge or the director, any person committing any of the following acts in a proceeding before a workers' compensation judge or the director may be held accountable for [his] the person's conduct in
21 1 accordance with the provisions of Subsection D of this section: (1) disobedience of or resistance to any lawful order or process; () misbehavior during a hearing or so near the place of the hearing as to obstruct it; () failure to produce any pertinent book, paper or document after having been ordered to do so; () refusal to appear after having been subpoenaed; () refusal to take the oath or affirmation as a witness; or () refusal to be examined according to law.
