Grace period for reporting medical lien payments
The California Division of Workers Compensation (DWC) will allow claims administrators until Jul. 1, 2007 to begin reporting medical lien payment information to the WCIS. Claims administrators are required to electronically report billing data for medical services in compliance with International Association of Industrial Accident Boards & Commissions (IAIABC) standards, which now have incorporated reporting procedures when medical bills in dispute are settled in lump sum payments.
The WCIS will follow the IAIABC-approved standard
for processing medical lien payments (see IRR:
MED547R1.0). Following the IAIABC standard, the DWC is granting a grace period
for reporting medical lien payments, until Jul. 1, 2007. The DWC intends to offer
WebEx training on the IAIABC medical lien reporting guidelines later this spring.
Details will be announced in an upcoming eNews and posted on the WCIS website.
