Greetings, a few things:
- Today is 1-time change clean-up day. Be sure to scan everything from the claimant or their attorney that came in Wednesday or over the weekend. Look out for anything citing 440.13(2)(f), an “alternative” doctor, etc…We must respond by 4:59 pm today to any Wednesday requests with the name of the doctor (not clinic) you are selecting. You don’t need confirmation today that the doctor will see the claimant and you don’t need an appointment date, just the name.
- The Division has put out the 2020 Maximum Compensation Rate…$971. Here is the announcement. https://www.myfloridacfo.com/Division/wc/pdf/Max-Comp-Rate-2020-Bulletin.pdf
