This notice does not constitute a request for a Benefit Review Conference. If the initial determination is that the entire claim is not compensable, see DWC Form PLN-01. The insurance carrier must: · check the appropriate box(es) to indicate the issue(s) being disputed; and · provide a full and complete statement describing the factual basis and the reason(s) for the action taken. NOTE: A generic statement such as "employee returned to work," "adjusted for light duty," "liability in question," "compensability in dispute," "under investigation," or similar phrases with no further description of the factual basis for the action taken does not satisfy the requirements of 28 TAC §124.2(h). Take caution to explain the reason(s) for disputing the issue(s) in plain language without unnecessary use of technical terms, acronyms, and/or abbreviations. Disputes should be based on the information the carrier has obtained or verified. PROVIDE A COPY OF THIS NOTICE TO DWC, THE CLAIMANT, AND TO THE CLAIMANT'S REPRESENTATIVE (if applicable).
