On April 14, 2016, the DWC held its Quarterly Insurance Carrier Meeting. The Division reported
that the 484 pending air ambulance disputes have been abated pending resolution of litigation in
state and federal court regarding reimbursement for those services. The Division reported
approximately 30 new air ambulance cases are being filed each month, which will also be abated.
Martha Luevano, Director of Medical Fee Dispute Resolution (MFDR) at DWC, also reminded
Carriers of the requirement to respond timely to medical fee disputes. It was noted that 12% of the
time MFDR does not receive a response. Since a response is required by rule, failure to respond
may result in an administrative violation.
