Current Bill Summary

SB 182 - This act requires that the reduction in compensation or death benefit, in a workers' compensation claim, be made first from the total death and disability compensation. If any reduction is made in the form of a reduction of payments to any health care provider, the health care provider may pursue the employee to collect any unpaid fees or charges when a determination of a reduction is made. Upon a determination that a reduction in compensation shall be made, the division shall notify the health care provider who rendered services of the reduction, within ten days of the determination.

This act is similar to SCS/SB 929 (2006).
