Key highlights include: – Greater Employee Accountability – Improved and Efficient Medical Management – Defined Adjudication Process – Effective February

21 Key Differences OK vs. TX Opt Out Some key differences include: – OK law does not allow an employer to “go bare” as does TX. – OK benefit schedule follows the mandatory benefit levels that are equal to or greater than those set in the reformed workers’ compensation system. – OK mandates that the employer must purchase a high level of insurance coverage to satisfy stricter bonding or financial requirements. – Due to higher level of mandatory benefit commitment, OK employers will not be subject to negligence liability claims by injured workers and the “exclusive remedy” rule will apply. – OK will have structured regulatory oversight that will be able to build on the data from day one and provide access to this data promptly to ensure the program is being properly administered. 21
