For example, when the total fees for occupational or physical therapy treatment approach the sum of $1,000, the physician shall file an additional C-4 report and request authorization as prescribed in subdivision (5) of section 13-a of the Workers' Compensation Law. (2) This section also applies to hospitals, specialists, consultants and surgeons, who are actually engaged to perform such services. (3) Such request for authorization should be by telephone to the employer or carrier and later confirmed by letter. (4) In order to process such requests expeditiously and within the time limits specified hereunder, the insurance carrier shall designate a qualified employee in its office, and the self-insured employer shall designate a qualified employee in its office or an authorized employee of its licensed representative, to receive and act upon such requests. To assure compliance within the time limits prescribed, qualified persons shall be specially designated, within each office of the Workers' Compensation Board, to deal with complaints relative to such authorizations. (5) In response to requests for authorization, the self-insured employer or insurance carrier may have the patient examined within four business days if patient is hospitalized or thirty days if patient is not hospitalized, by an appropriate medical board-certified specialist who is also authorized in such specialty, by the chair, to treat workers' compensation claimants. If such specialist is not available, consultation may be rendered by an authorized physician who is acceptable to both the self-insured employer or insurance carrier and the physician requesting authorization, or in the event the parties cannot agree, a physician may be selected by the chair. (6) The self-insured employer or insurance carrier shall grant or deny the requested authorization within four working days if the claimant is hospitalized, or within thirty days if the claimant is not hospitalized, by orally notifying the physician or hospital of its action. It shall confirm such action in writing by sending a notice to the physician, claimant's attorney or licensed representative and/or hospital within five days after the examination of the claimant when the four-day provision applies. When the 30 day provision applies, the written confirmation shall be mailed within such period. Written notice of denial must be based on a conflicting second opinion rendered by a physician authorized to treat workers' compensation claimants. Nothing herein shall relieve the carrier from complying with the provisions of 12 NYCRR 300.23. (7) If such authorization or denial is not forthcoming within four working days if patient is hospitalized, the chair may issue an order, after investigation, authorizing the special services, on the ground that such authorization has been unreasonably withheld and the employer or carrier shall be liable for the payment for such special services and investigation.
