    The Idaho Legislature did not renew the existing administrative rules at the end of the 2019 Legislative session. In April, the Governor’s Office directed the Industrial Commission to take the necessary steps to minimize the impact of the rules expiring. In January, the Governor signed the Red Tape Reduction Act, requiring agencies to cut down on rule sections to make the chapters as simple as possible. To meet the direction of the Governor, the Commission will bring forward rule chapter revisions for when the rules expire on July 1st. These revisions will follow a special process put in place by the Division of Financial Management for final approval by the Governor’s Office. All changes are strictly to consolidate information per the Red Tape Reduction Act. There will be no substantive changes.
    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.
