Rule 4123-6-01.2 | Provisional treatment reimbursement approval -- pilot program.
Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in any other rule of the bureau, the administrator may, for purposes of a pilot program, allow one or more managed care organizations to authorize medical treatment reimbursement requests for the first sixty days from the initial allowance of an identified at-risk claim for any conditions within the same body part or parts as the conditions initially allowed in the claim, and presumed to be causally related to the same industrial injury or occupational disease, without disclaimer, during such time as the conditions for which treatment reimbursement is authorized but which are not yet allowed are being considered for allowance or being adjudicated.
The operation of the pilot program authorized under this rule shall not impair in any manner the right of an employer to appeal a claim, additional allowance, or medical treatment reimbursement determination under section 4123.511 of the Revised Code or rule 4123-6-16 of the Administrative Code.
The pilot program authorized under this rule shall be extended through December 31, 2021; provided, however, that the administrator may terminate the pilot program early at the administrator's discretion.
