    PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The proposed rules represent a substantial rewrite and reorganization of Rule 69L-7.710, F.A.C., (formerly Rule 69L-7.602, F.A.C.), titled, “Florida Workers’ Compensation Medical Services Billing, Filing and Reporting Rule.” Existing Rule 69L-7.710, F.A.C., is rewritten and reorganized into five proposed rules that are intended to replace existing Rule 69L-7.710, F.A.C. The proposed rules incorporate updated versions of form DFS-F5-DWC-9, related instructions, including revised billing instructions for dispensing practitioners when billing for dispensed medications and for pharmacists billing on form DFS-F5-DWC-10. The proposed rules, likewise, incorporate revised form completion instructions for pharmacies and pharmacists, hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, health care providers, work hardening programs, nursing homes and home health agencies. In addition, there are new, revised and deleted definitions that support the implementation of SB 662, Ch. 2013-131, L.O.F., and upon federal implementation, use of the ICD-10. The proposed rules omit an entire section of the former rule, titled, “Materials Incorporated by Reference.” The aforementioned section is transferred (by separate rulemaking) to proposed new Rule Chapter 69L-8, F.A.C., titled, “Selected Materials Incorporated by Reference,” and organized under proposed new Rule 69L-8.074, F.A.C., titled, “Materials for use throughout Rule Chapter 69L-7, F.A.C.”
