HB 3452 AND ITS IMPACT ON SB 904

By: Adam J. Cox

 

            On the heels of the enactment of SB 904 as law, the General Assembly passed HB 3452 on November 29, 2018.  As it pertains to workers’ compensation, Senate Amendment 3 of HB 3452 is a trailer bill to address some of the changes created in SB 904.  It narrows SB 904 insofar as a medical provider’s ability to file suit in the circuit court would be limited to seeking the 1% non-payment interest only, and no other issues that involve medical bills.  The circuit court’s jurisdiction would be confined solely to enforcement of payment for any accrued interest.  HB 3452 will now be submitted to the Governor.  Below is a link to the full text.
