North Carolina: Commission outlines changes to filing requirements
An employer, carrier, or administrator is required to provide the worker with a completed form of the employer's report of the employee's injury or occupational disease and a blank notice of accident to employer form. The rules also require every carrier, self-insured employer, group self-insured employer, and statutory self-insured employer to submit an annual consolidated fiscal report of "medical only" and "lost time" claims. An employer is required to post a notice that includes the name of its insurer, the policy number, and dates of coverage. The commission anticipates holding public hearings in August and plans for the amended rules to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2013. For a copy of the proposed rules, visit www.ic.nc.gov/ncic/PAGES/10A%20-%20Workers'%20Compensation%20-%20OAH.pdf.
