(2) Notice of the first payment to a claimant shall be sent to counsel of record by the insurer or self-insured employer.
(3) If a workers compensation judge or the Board approves attorneys fees and costs, a payment for fees and costs, separate from a compensation payment, shall be made payable, and issued, to the claimants attorney.
(4) An employer may not require a claimant to appear at a specific place to receive compensation payments.
