Texas DWC Form-032 Revised Again


Austin, TX (WorkersCompensation.com) - The Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers' Compensation (TDI-DWC) revised  and adopted the DWC Form-032, Request for Designated Doctor Examination, in July 2012 to conform to TDI-DWC rules adopted on July 9, 2012 regarding the designated doctor examination process, 28 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §§127.1, 127.5, 127.10, 127.20, 127.25, 127.100, 127.110, 127.120, 127.130, 127.140, 127.200, 127.210, 127.220, and 180.23; and repealed 28 TAC §130.6 and §180.21.

Due to the new designated doctor selection criteria, which became effective January 1, 2013, the DWC Form-032 has been revised again to remove the Addendum portion of the form. The Addendum pertains to designated doctor selection criteria that are no longer effective. Therefore, the Addendum is no longer required.

Workers' compensation system participants are to use this newly adopted DWC Form-032 on or after January 1, 2013, when requesting designated doctor examinations.

The forms are available in English and Spanish for download from the TDI website at www.tdi.texas.gov/forms/form20.html.
