Idaho Industrial Commission seeks addition to code
The Idaho Industrial Commission proposed an addition to the Idaho Code 17.02.08.033, Rule Governing Approval of Attorney Fees in Workers' Compensation Cases.
The change would require attorneys to provide an itemization of the amount and disposition of any and all medical bills or obligations to third-party payors that are due after a lump-sum settlement. The commission also proposed the inclusion of a temporary rule amendment to Idaho Code 17.02.08.031 to include physician fee updates that would no longer be available once the 2010 legislature adjourns. The complete text is available at http://adm.idaho.gov/adminrules.
