BREAKOUT SESSIONS

________________________________________________________________________________

 

A.   Past, Present & Future Regulations:  Progress and Projections

 

       Regulators at the New Jersey Department of Banking & Insurance and the Motor Vehicle Commission have been busy over the past two years updating current regulations and implementing new rules and programs.  In addition, the Red Tape Review Commission has scoured numerous regs with the goal of eliminating burdensome rules that hinder how businesses operate in NJ.  This session will focus on the status of adopted and proposed rules and administrative changes within recent years, including:  the PIP Medical Fee Schedule; the auto insurance coverage selection form; the NJ No-Fault Arbitration Program; ICD-10; salvage title reform; electronic access to vehicle ownership and insurance information; and much more.

 

B.   What’s Hot in the Courts

Auto insurers and providers continue to battle it out in the courts over UCR and the applicability of medical fee schedules.  In the recent Appellate case of University Physician Associates v. Transport Drivers, this type of dispute was carried over into a workers’ compensation suit with the judge’s decision affirming that paid fees are more accurate than billed and that government programs, as well as fees paid by PPOs and other contractual arrangements, should be considered when determining UCR.  In a Superior Court case pending appeal, Citizens United Reciprocal Exchange v Cooper Hospital, the provider is challenging the lower court’s ruling that says while the PIP medical fee schedule regulations provide an exemption for certain in-patient hospital services, the language in NJAC 11:3-29(4)(a) expressly applies the UCR requirement to in-patient hospital bills.  This session will review the impact of the outcome of these cases and review what’s trending in the courts and with DRP decisions.

NJ Gubernatorial Transition 2018

After eight years of the Governor Christie Administration, New Jersey will elect a new Governor in November for a four year term beginning in January 2018.  What happens procedurally and politically during the transition of power?  What can the insurance industry expect from a new Administration?  This Session will host a panel of elected and appointed officials and policy experts who will highlight the fundamentals of a transition period and review the potential judicial, regulatory and legislative changes anticipated to happen over the next four years.
