Nebraska: Court spells out required information for acquired claims
The court now requires acquiring and prior claim administrators to provide written notice on company letterhead not less than 30 days prior to the effective date of the claims administration. The notice should be specific about the acquisition and must provide the names and federal employer identification numbers for both the acquiring and prior claims administrators. The notice should also include the transmission start date of the acquisition. Also, the notice should explain how open claims will be administered. The notice should explain whether the acquiring claims administrator is able to report the paid-to-date codes for unallocated prior indemnity benefits and unallocated prior medical benefits. Claims administrators that fail to provide the notice may have their acquired unallocated and acquired payment transactions rejected. The advisory also listed amendments to the first report of injury implementation guide and the subsequent report of injury implementation guide.
