Dallas Medical Center apparently ignored a refund request filed by a carrier, and ended up on December 2, 2014 with an order to pay a $15,000 fine.  It is easy to forget that if a carrier makes a refund request against a provider and the provider fails to appeal the request to the carrier, or appeals a refund request and the carrier denies the appeal, the requested refund must be paid.  The provider’s only remedy after paying the refund is to take the refund request to dispute resolution for a final determination by the agency– it cannot refuse to pay without risking the ire of the DWC (and a hefty fine).
