DME and Home Health Informal & Voluntary Network
Texas Labor Code 408.0284 allows for the creation of informal & voluntary networks for durable medical equipment and home health. A carrier, or the carrier’s agent, may access fees that are inconsistent with the Texas Workers’ Compensation Medical Fee Guidelines. If a carrier, or the carrier’s agent, choose to use an informal and voluntary network, there must be contractual arrangement between:
1. The carrier, or the carrier’s agent, and the informal & voluntary network.
2. The informal & voluntary network and the health care providers that includes a specific fee schedule.
Texas Labor Code 408.0284(d) requires a registered informal & voluntary network to provide notification to providers and any person (i.e. carriers, certified self-insured employers, bill review, etc..), other than the injured employee, to which the network’s contractual fee arrangements with the health care providers are sold, leased or conveyed.
