I know many are still not aware that the Florida Workers Comp Heath
Provider Certification
is no longer required. The injured individual can
choose to whoever doctor they want to treat them, but the physician's
office must call the insurance carrier to obtain prior authorization before
seeing the patient or treating the patient.

Here's a NOTICE directly from their website!

Certification as a Health Care Provider

"ALERT!

Effective July 1, 2013, the DWC Health Care Provider Certification Website and
Health Care Provider Certification List will be removed from the Division’s web site.
On June 7, 2013, Governor Scott signed Committee Substitute for House Bill 553
(Chapter 2013-141, Laws of Florida) repealing the requirement for Health Care
Providers to be certified by the Department of Financial Services, Division of
Workers’ Compensation to be eligible for payment of services rendered to injured
workers per Section 440.13, Florida Statutes. Carrier authorization before the
provision of services, except for emergency care, and provider licensure is still
required as a condition to eligibility for payment of services rendered under this
Section. The Division will retain its provider certification records consistent with
public records retention schedules and for reference by interested parties (e.g., the
Office of the Judges of Compensation Claims)."
