The Division recently issued a memo “reminding” insurance carriers and treating doctors that
medical records must be provided to designated doctors no later than three business days prior to
the exam. The memo also includes a “reminder” that the failure to do so is an administrative
violation. The Division has established a new email address DD’s can use to ask for help from the
Division in obtaining records, presumably when the records are not timely received: Therefore, carriers and treating doctors who do not get the records to
the DD timely should not be surprised if they receive a violation notice.
