dc.description.abstractExplains instances in which hearing officers conducting benefit contested case hearings have been asked to determine the extent of a claimant’s injuries are not allowed under the 1989 Texas Workers’ Compensation Act. The author notes that disputes about the reasonableness and necessity of continued medical treatment should be addressed through the “Administrative Procedures/Medical Review Hearing” system and not through a benefit contested case hearing. The author states that the prevalence of extent of injury issues are a throwback to pre-1989 law where causation and extent issues were treated differently than they are under current law.en_US
