PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The purpose and effect of the proposed rule development is to amend the current rule chapter to revise the process by which health care providers meet the minimum criteria for certification pursuant to Section 440.13(3)(a), F.S. The proposed amendment also introduces the “Florida Workers’ Compensation Health Care Provider Certification Tutorial,” a no-cost, on-line resource that implements an electronic certification process for health care providers that will improve efficiencies in the certification process. The tutorial ensures participation only by statutorily defined providers and provides a learning tool that allows providers to progress at their own pace and to create and maintain their provider profile. The tutorial supplies providers with an overview of the Florida Workers’ Compensation System and the general administrative policies necessary for a health care provider to be certified and successfully participate under the Florida workers’ compensation system.
SUBJECT AREA TO BE ADDRESSED: Certification of Health Care Providers.
