The proposed amendments reduce the penalties assessed against self-insurers for late filing of required forms, reports, and documents and also recalculate penalties assessed against a self-insurer. If the self-insurer already paid the penalty to the Department of Financial Services, the department will refund the difference between the penalty paid and the new reduced penalty, unless the self-insurer owes outstanding unpaid penalties. If requested, a hearing is scheduled for Oct. 14 at 2 p.m. in room 102, Hartman Building, 2012 Capitol Circle S.E., Tallahassee. Those with questions should contact Pam Macon at email@example.com.
