§ 61.25

Setting at Carrier's Request

Upon a showing of good cause, prehearing will be set by the board on the insurance carrier's request. It shall be presumed the payment of compensation benefits for a period of consecutive 52 weeks or longer constitutes a case of “extended disability,” and in such cases the carrier, upon written request therefore, approved by the board, shall be entitled to a prehearing conference in order to review the claimant's physical and medical condition and the treatment thereof.

The provisions of this § 61.25 adopted to be effective November 11, 1983, 8 TexReg 4497.
