Report Title: Workers' Compensation; Employers; Service Providers; Payment; Disagreement; Resolution Procedures
Description: Establishes that employers shall pay all workers' compensation claims for compensable injuries and shall not deny claims without reasonable cause or during a pending investigation. Creates a presumption of compensability for claims submitted by employees excluded from coverage under the Hawaii Prepaid Health Care Act. Establishes that employers shall notify providers of service of any billing disagreements and allows providers to charge an additional rate to employers for outstanding balances owed for undisputed services or charges. Establishes resolution procedures for employers and providers who have a reasonable disagreement over liability for services rendered. Requires an employee whose claim is found to be uncompensable to submit reimbursements for services rendered. (SB857 HD2)
