On October 1, 2015, the Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) implemented a new online QME panel process for represented initial panel requests . The new process requires parties in represented cases to submit an initial QME panel request online. As a result, a QME panel list of evaluators will immediately be generated. The requesting party will then serve the panel request form, any required documentation and the QME panel on all parties with a proof of service.
The DWC has posted an online QME Form 106 Panel Request training video, training guide, and FAQs on the Medical Unit website. The video demonstration details the way in which represented initial panel requests will be submitted using the new online system.
