The purpose of this newsletter is to provide you with timely updates on proposed and enacted regulations that may impact your business. Questions or comments about The Examiner may be ed to Featured State Legislative Updates Illinois WC Regulation - Workers Compensation Preferred Provider Program The Illinois Department of Insurance approved final regulations for its Workers Compensation Preferred Provider Program (WC PPP) Administrator certification. The regulations were adopted on March 4, 2013, establishing rules related to 820 ILCS 305/8(a) and 8.1a, which were enacted on June 28, The purpose of the law is to allow for direction of care through established provider networks. A PPP program allows employers and insurers to contain costs and impact quality of services by eliminating all non-network care, with the exception of care for claimants who utilize an opt-out option. In order to qualify as a WC PPP, an organization must meet requirements regarding proper notice to injured workers, accessibility of providers, procedures to allow injured workers to opt out of the program, and provider qualification. Procura Management, a wholly owned subsidiary of Healthcare Solutions, was approved as a WC PPP Administrator by the Illinois Department of Insurance, effective August 15, Because the company maintains networks of all types of providers physicians, specialty services (imaging, physical therapy, DME, and home health) and pharmacies it is uniquely positioned to provide the comprehensive networks required of WC PPPs under Illinois law. Texas House Bill 1322 DME & Home Health Care Reimbursement Under Texas Labor Code , which became effective on September 1, 2013, insurance carriers and selfinsured employers (collectively, Carriers ) will have a new avenue to obtain durable medical equipment (DME) and home health services at a discount below Texas fee schedule. Previously, Texas law required Carriers to pay no less than fee schedule, unless contracted with an approved Health Care Network. The new law allows a Carrier or its authorized agent to obtain discounts by contracting with an Informal Network that has met certain defined requirements. Requirements include the following: 1. The Informal Network must register with the state s Department of Insurance, and must report to the state all Carriers that obtain services via the network, including FEINs for each Carrier. 2. Contracts must be in place between each Carrier or its authorized agent and the Informal Network, and between the Informal Network and each network provider. 3. The Informal Network must send quarterly notices to its network providers in accordance with the statute s requirements Meadow Church Rd Suite 300 Duluth, GA Healthcare Solutions has established a Texas Informal Network for DME and Home Health services, and is able to deliver these services at a discount below fee schedule to contracted customers.
