New update affecting sexual assault and family violence survivors

We recently made the following change to our administrative rules: “When medical treatment or counseling is provided to a sexual assault or family violence survivor and such survivor, who is not the subscriber or primary policyholder of an insurance policy, opts out of submitting a claim for such services under such policy, the cost of such medical treatment or counseling shall be paid by the fund in an amount as provided in O.C.G.A. § 17-15-8; provided, however, that such award shall not be reduced or set off by the amount of any payment that would have been made under such policy.”


What does this mean for the crime victims we serve? 

If a victim of sexual assault or family violence is NOT the primary policyholder, they may opt out of providing insurance information for this incident by checking the opt-out box in Section 6 of the application. 

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.
