We have seen a few recent cases where Carriers are being charged for designated doctor appointments missed or rescheduled by Claimants. The DWC medical fee guidelines do not permit a designated doctor to bill a Carrier for a rescheduled or missed appointment. DWC Rule 134.204.  Bills that invoice Carriers for a fee for missed or rescheduled appointments should be denied.
