P. Dowhower v. WCAB (Capco Contracting)

P. Dowhower v. WCAB (Capco Contracting) is a case regarding when an IRE request is timely, e.g. within 60 days of the expiration of 104 weeks of temporary total disability. The Commonwealth Court held that where an Employer requested designation of an IRE physician before the expiration of 104 weeks, but didn't have the exam and issue the Notice of Change of Workers' Compensation Disability Status until after 104 weeks had expired, the IRE and change of status is valid.
