The DWC said the adoption of the form is necessary to allow insurance carriers a way to reduce the amount of income benefits they pay to an injured employee if there was a past work- related injury to the same body part or parts.
Insurance carriers are to use the adopted form on or after June 13, 2022. The form is on the TDI website.
