|(a) On or after January 1, 1993, except in emergency situations,
injured employees must receive medical treatment from a doctor on the commission
approved doctor list (the list). This list initially includes all doctors
licensed in Texas on or after January 1, 1993, and doctors licensed in other
jurisdictions who have been added to the list by the commission.
(b) Doctors licensed in other jurisdictions may ask to be added
to the list by submitting a written request containing information prescribed
by the commission. Unless the doctor has been deleted from the list by the
commission, a carrier shall not withhold reimbursement to doctors licensed
in other jurisdictions when the only reason for nonpayment is that the doctor
is not presently on the list.
(c) This section is no longer effective on or after September
