There has been an uptick in the number of “Monitoring Letters” from DWC. The issues include: failing to attend a BRC without good cause; failing to timely respond to Claimant requests for information; failing to timely file notice of coverage and claim administration contact information to the DWC; failing to electronically file Employer’s First Report of Injury; and, failing to provide all pertinent information to the DWC and parties prior to a BRC. 
We are not sure what has spawned the recent activity, but will continue to monitor the situation.  We do know that in two instances we requested withdrawal of the letter upon proof that the allegations were categorically unfounded.
