Hot on the heels of the disturbing findings of the Workers’ Compensation Research and Evaluation Group, the TDI-DWC may be doing something about them. The DWC announced this month that it is accepting comments on an informal draft of amendments to Rule 134.500 (concerning definitions) and Rules 134.530 and 134.540 (concerning requirements for use of the pharmacy closed formulary).

The proposed amendments would change the definition of "closed formulary" to exclude any prescription drug created through compounding and require preauthorization for all prescription drugs created through compounding for claims subject to, and not subject to, certified networks.

The comment period closes July 7.--David L. Swanson, Stone Loughlin & Swanson, LLP
