Regulations Adoption of Amendment to 12 NYCRR 325-1.3 (Medical Providers Reports of Treatment)

Regulations

The Chair has adopted the amendment of Section 325-1.3 of 12 NYCRR to change "physicians" to "treating providers" to conform to the Expanded Provider Law, to allow insurers, self-insured employers, and TPAs to designate a single mailing address for medical reports and bills, and to facilitate implementation of the Board’s transition to use of the CMS-1500 in electronic format, including a requirement that insurers accept electronic submission of the CMS-1500.

The Notice of Proposed Rule Making was published in the June 10, 2020, edition of the State Register. A Notice of Adoption will be published in the October 14, 2020, edition of the State Register. The amendments will be effective upon publication.
