An Act Regarding Responsibility for the Overpayment of Claims
Sec. 1. 24-A MRSA §2436-C is enacted to read:
§ 2436-C. Overpayment of claims
An insurer that has overpaid on a claim for payment of benefits under a policy or certificate of insurance delivered or issued for delivery in this State is subject to the following requirements.
This bill requires an insurer who overpays a claim to attempt to retroactively collect that overpayment directly from the provider, not the insured, unless the insured was directly paid by the insurer for the services identified in the claim and the insured did not forward payment to the provider.
