Ohio: Deadline nears for comments on claimant reimbursement proposal
The revised rule allows the payor to receive no more than the amount that would have been paid to the health care provider as provided by the rules. In cases where the payor is the claimant's health insurer, if the claimant seeks reimbursement for an out-of-pocket co-payment and the claimant's health insurer was already reimbursed or later seeks reimbursement, the claimant may be reimbursed for the co-payment and the claimant's health insurer may be reimbursed up to the amount that would have been paid to the health care provider as provided by the rules. Comments on the proposal may be e-mailed to Aniko Nagy at firstname.lastname@example.org until March 23.
