SB863 – New Requirements for Self-Insured Employers

With the passage of SB863 self-insured employers must now file an actuarial report annually with the Office of Self-Insurance Plans (OSIP).  Effective January 1, 2013 all private self-insured employers must now submit an actuarial study.  The guidelines for this actuarial study can be found at this link:  Self-Insured Actuarial Reporting Requirements Information Sheet

Another change with SB863 is the new Independent Medical Review (IMR) process.  At this time, the associated costs for an IMR should be coded as an Allocated Loss Adjustment Expense. It is OSIP’s opinion at this time that since an IMR is a process to resolve disputes regarding utilization review decisions it should be coded as an allocated loss adjustment expense because it is part of a medical cost containment program -15300(b)(1).  Any updates to this information will be posted as warranted.
