November 18, 2020
Due to the unique nature of the 2020 Rulemaking process, the Commission has posted the following changes, summaries, and public hearing transcript in an effort to make the changes transparent and easier to understand. The Commission’s previous thirteen (13) IDAPA chapters were reduced and simplified into three (3) IDAPA chapters.
Changes were made to eliminate rules already in statue, combine sections, and make the rules more accessible to the public. The consolidation of these chapters is recapped in the summary of changes and the track changes of sections. New to the rulemaking process this year, agencies were required to develop cover pages summarizing each IDAPA chapter. As a result, sections of the rules were removed and summarized in these cover pages. If you have any questions, please contact (208) 334-6000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
All authorized workers’ compensation carriers are required to register as a trading partner. When the Commission has authorized a carrier to write policies, there is the potential for a policy to be written at any time with exposure to future claims. A trading partner registration ensures the ability to comply with the electronic reporting requirement via EDI Claims Release 3.0.
