The Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) will review all sections within the “Old Law” chapters, Chapters 41-69, of Title 28, Part 2 of the Texas Administrative Code (TAC), in accordance with Texas Government Code § 2001.039.

Accordingly, DWC is accepting public comments on whether the rules within the “Old Law” chapters, 28 TAC Chapters 41 – 69, still have reason to exist and whether these rules should be repealed, readopted, or readopted with amendments as required for rule review under Texas Government Code § 2001.039. 

DWC is specifically requesting comments as to whether 28 TAC § 42.105 (DWC, Medical Fee Guideline) should be updated to reference the current requirements of 28 TAC § 134.201 (DWC, Medical Fee Guideline for Medical Treatments and Services Provided under the Texas Workers' Compensation Act).
