The Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation has added an amendment to new plain language notice PLN-3b. The amendment gives insurance carriers an option to show the injured employee when they are making a reasonable assessment of impairment rating. Insurance carriers must now begin using revised plain language notices PLN-1, PLN-2, and PLN-4 through PLN-12. To allow time for system participants to implement the latest amendment, insurance carriers must begin using the PLN-3a, PLN-3b, and PLN-3c on April 1st, 2018.
