Information for the Injured Employee

For what purposes may a Required Medical Examination be requested?

DWC Form-022 Required Medical Examination - Request for Agreement / Request for Order is an insurance carrier’s request for you to be examined by a doctor of the insurance carrier’s choice. This examination is called a Required Medical Examination, or RME.

Request for Order (Evaluation of Designated Doctor Determination): If you have been examined by a Designated Doctor, the insurance carrier may ask TDI-DWC to order you to attend an RME to address the same issue(s) the Designated Doctor addressed.

Request for Agreement/Order (Appropriateness of Health Care Received): The insurance carrier may use the form to request your agreement to attend an RME to determine whether health care you have received was appropriate. You have 15 days from the date the carrier sent the request to you to complete Section IX. INJURED EMPLOYEE AGREEMENT/NON-AGREEMENT and return the form to the insurance carrier. You should keep a copy for your records. If you do not agree to attend the RME, the insurance carrier may ask TDI-DWC to order you to attend.

Exception for Network Claims: If you received medical benefits through a certified workers’ compensation health care network, the insurance carrier is not permitted to request an RME on the appropriateness of health care received.

Exception for Certain Political Subdivision Claims: If you received medical benefits through a political subdivision pursuant to §504.053(b)(2) of the Texas Labor Code, relating to directly contracting with health care providers or contracting through a health benefits pool, the insurance carrier is not permitted to request an RME unless the RME is necessary to resolve a question relating to the entitlement to or amount of income benefits.

How often can a Required Medical Examination be performed?

An RME to determine appropriateness of health care received may not be performed more than once every 180 days. Examinations to evaluate a Designated Doctor determination may be performed more frequently. After you have received Supplemental Income Benefits for eight quarters, an RME to evaluate a Designated Doctor determination regarding your ability to return-to-work may be performed no more than once per year.

What will TDI-DWC do?

Within 7 days of receiving the insurance carrier’s request for an RME, TDI-DWC will approve or deny the request.

If TDI-DWC approves the insurance carrier’s request or you agree to attend the RME, TDI-DWC will issue an order requiring you to attend.

NOTE: If the request is approved, your failure to attend the scheduled RME may be considered an administrative violation and may result in suspension of temporary income benefits, if applicable. You may request that your treating doctor attend the RME.

If TDI-DWC denies the insurance carrier’s request, you will receive a copy of the denial order. In that case you will not be required to attend the RME.

Can the RME appointment be rescheduled?

If you cannot attend an RME, you must contact the doctor’s office to reschedule the examination at least 24 hours in advance. The rescheduled appointment must be no later than 7 days after the original appointment unless you and the doctor agree on a different date that is no later than 30 days after the original appointment.
