Oregon: Division offers guidance on employer-paid reimbursement claims
Before each policy year, insurers must send employers a notice advising of the employer's right to reimburse insurer-paid medical service costs. An employer may choose this reimbursement option regardless of which workers' compensation carrier insures the employer or whether the insurance policy addresses the reimbursement option. The insurer must exclude the reimbursed costs from the employer's experience rating. For 2012, the maximum reimbursement amount will be $1,700. Those with questions should contact a benefit consultant at (503) 947-7585.
