At least every other year, the Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation is required to evaluate the performance of healthcare providers in the workers’ compensation system. Healthcare providers were evaluated on three criteria: (1) DWC Form-069, Report of Medical Evaluation; (2) Completeness of the DWC Form-073, Work Status Report; and (3) Documentation supporting why the injured worker is prevented from returning to work as reported on the DWC Form-073. The majority of healthcare providers were identified as a “high tier performer.” If you are curious about how well any specific provider performed, you can review the Division resultshere.
