This bill concerns the electronic submission of workers' compensation claims. Specifically, the bill requires the Commissioner of Labor and Workforce Development to adopt rules and regulations which: (1) ensure that all health care providers submit medical bills for payment on standardized forms; (2) require employers, workers' compensation insurance carriers of employers, and third-party administrators to accept electronic claims for the payment of medical services; (3) ensure confidentiality of medical information submitted on electronic claims for payment of medical services pursuant to the "Workers' Compensation Medical Information Confidentiality Act," P.L.2001, c.326 (C.34:15-128.1 et seq.); and (4) provide that payment for medical services provided or prescribed by the health care provider shall be made by the employer, workers' compensation insurance carrier, or third-party administrator to the health care provider within 15 working days after electronic receipt of an itemized electronic billing. If the billing is contested, denied, or incomplete, payment shall be made of any uncontested amounts within 15 working days after electronic receipt of the billing. Exclusive jurisdiction for any contested medical charge arising from any claim for compensation for a work-related injury or illness shall be vested in the division, pursuant to R.S.34:15-15.
