This page is intended to keep the members informed about  activities of the new Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers' Compensation that may affect the practice of spinal surgery.  For complete details, click www.tdi.state.tx.us/wc/indexwc.html to link to the new website.

Workers' Comp Fees set at 125% of Medicare

Effective September 1, 2003 TWCC adopted a Fee Schedule based on 125% of Medicare.  Additionally, to participate in Texas Workers' Comp, physicians must take a course and enroll to be on the Approved Doctor List (ADL).  These changes at TWCC forced a great many physicians to withdraw from the system and stop treating injured workers.  The long-term impact on employers and injured workers remains to be seen, but certainly access to quality medical care will be limited.
