(1) Prior to or upon termination of temporary total disability benefits to a disabled worker, a rehabilitation provider must be designated by the insurer or the division will require them to do so. If maximum healing has been reached by a disabled worker and the insurer has not designated a rehabilitation provider, the insurer will pay total rehabilitation benefits to the disabled worker and the 26-week period will not start until the rehabilitation provider is designated.
