Victims Compensation payment updates that go into effect on July 1, 2022
On July 1, 2022, HB 141 will become effective! HB 141 will impact all medical bills with a date of service on or after July 1, 2022 as follows:
- Payments will be deemed “payment in full” once paid and accepted by the provider.
- Medical bills for uninsured victims will be paid in accordance with the Workers’ Compensation fee schedule.
What does this mean for the crime victims we serve?
- Providers will no longer be able to bill claimants for the remaining monies owed on their medical bill. This ensures crime victims don’t suffer additional trauma from agencies attempting to collect on bills related to their victimization.
- With medical bills being paid at a reduced rate, claimants may be able to maximize their $15,000 medical cap to address outstanding medical expenses and thus further reduce their financial burden.
