Levels of Review Level I The treating physician sends this form with the Provider Request portion completed, along with documentation for the requested procedure, to the payer of the claim. The payer is to notify the treating physician within five (5) business days of approval or denial of the request. The payer may use medical or non medical personnel at this level to make the decision to approve or deny the request. If the request is denied the payer must send the criteria used in making the decision to deny payment for the procedure requested. Level II A physician who has been denied authorization for payment for treatment, or has received no response to the request within the five (5) days, may request physician review of the request by sending the completed portion of the request for physician review. The requesting physician is to include the days and times that he/she is available to discuss the case with a reviewing physician. The payer’s physician reviewer must make a reasonable attempt to contact the treating physician regarding the payer’s denial and must complete the review within five (5) business days of the treating physician’s request for review. If the authorization for payment for the treatment is denied, the reviewing physician must send the criteria used to make the decision along with the name and specialty of the reviewing physician to the treating physician. If the treating physician proceeds with the treatment without the approval of the payer and the treatment is a non emergency, the payer is liable for only 75% of the amount otherwise payable if the Labor Commission deems the treatment reasonable to treat the industrial injury. The 25% reduction does not apply if the treating physician receives authorization from the injured worker’s health insurance plan.
