House Bill 146
150th General Assembly (Present)
Becomes effective upon date of signature of the Governor or upon date specified
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 18 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO HEALTH INSURANCE.
This bill makes three changes to health insurers and their relationships to providers. First, it limits the number of records that can be requested by a payer from a provider for post claim adjudication audits within a specific period of time. Second, it establishes a minimum filling standard for claims to be made. And third, it details requirements for electronic medical claim submissions and payment remittance. The goal is to reduce the overall cost to collect and make the process of claims, payments, and post claim adjudication audits more efficient especially as more insurers require electronic claims.
