Reduced Fees for Filing IBRs

June 9, 2014 by Catherine Montgomery

Last week we reported on the fee reduction for filing an Independent Bill Review.  We now have published confirmation and more details on fee reductions for both IBRs and Independent Medical Reviews.

The DWC reduced fees by 25%, effective April 1, 2014.  Providers who submitted an IMR or IBR on or after April 1, 2014, and who had paid the old fee, will receive a refund of the difference.  In addition, the DWC has introduced a new fee that is applicable only to IMRs where all treatments in dispute fall under the service category “pharmaceuticals.”

For more information, refer to DWC Newsline 2014-47.
