Timely Response

Payor must respond to a 1010 Form within 5 days


If the Payor denies authorization, or fails to respond timely, providers may file a Disputed Claim for Medical Treatment (Form 1009) with the OWCA. The Medical Director will then review the claim and issue a decision.

This form must be submitted within 15 calendar days of the 1010 denial.
