Note: Authority cited: Section 11761, Insurance Code. Reference cited: Section 11761, Insurance Code.

Section 2592.01 Definitions

As used in this article:

(a) "Certify" means a written statement made under penalty of perjury.

(b) "Claims adjuster" means a person who, on behalf of an insurer, including an employee or agent of an entity that is not an insurer, is responsible for determining the validity of a workers' compensation claim. The claims adjuster may also establish a case reserve, approve and process all workers' compensation benefits, may hire investigators, attorneys or other professionals and may negotiate settlements of claims. "Claims adjuster" also means a person who is responsible for the immediate supervision of a claims adjuster but does not mean an attorney representing the insurer or a person whose primary function is clerical. "Claims adjuster" also includes an experienced claims adjuster. "Claims adjuster" does not include the medical director or physicians utilized by an insurer for the utilization review process pursuant to Labor Code section 4610.

(c) "Classroom" means any space sufficiently designed so that the instructor and students can communicate with a high degree of privacy and relative freedom from outside interference. The instructor or the person or persons assisting the instructor may be physically present or may communicate with students by means of an electronic medium, including, but not limited to, audio, video, computer, or Internet.

(d) "Course" means any program of instruction taken or given to satisfy the requirements of Insurance Code Section 11761.

(e) "Curriculum" means a course of study that satisfies the requirements of Insurance Code Section 11761.

(f) "Experienced claims adjuster" means a person who has had at least five (5) years within the past eight (8) years of on-the-job experience adjusting California workers' compensation claims or supervising claims adjusters handling California workers' compensation claims and is designated as an experienced claims adjuster by an insurer. A person who has successfully completed the written examination specified by Title 8, Section 15452 of the California Code of Regulations is also considered an experienced claims adjuster, provided that he or she has either (1) worked as a workers' compensation claims adjuster or supervised workers' compensation claims adjusters continuously since passing the examination and is designated as an experienced claims adjuster by an insurer or (2) passed the examination within the previous five (5) years and is designated as an experienced claims adjuster by an insurer. "Experienced claims adjuster" also includes a person who has already been trained and designated a claims adjuster and now meets the requirements of experience or examination completion noted above and is designated an experienced claims adjuster by an insurer.

(g) "Experienced medical-only claims adjuster" means a person who has had at least three (3) years within the past five (5) years of on-the-job experience adjusting California workers' compensation medical-only claims and is designated as an experienced medical-only claims adjuster by an insurer.

(h) "Experienced medical bill reviewer" means a person who has had at least three (3) years within the past five (5) years of on-the-job experience reviewing California workers' compensation medical bills and is designated as an experienced medical bill reviewer by a medical billing entity or by an insurer.

An instructor shall have had at least five (5) years within the past eight (8) years of on-the-job experience adjusting California workers' compensation claims and have been designated as a claims adjuster by an insurer or be an individual who has had at least eight (8) years of experience in California workers' compensation within the past twelve (12) years. Persons knowledgeable about specific workers' compensation issues who are not instructors may train students under the direction of an instructor.

(j) "Insurer" means an insurance company admitted to transact workers' compensation insurance in California, the State Compensation Insurance Fund, an employer that has secured a certificate of consent to self-insure from the Department of Industrial Relations pursuant to Labor Code Section 3700(b) or (c), or a third party administrator that has secured a certificate of consent pursuant to Labor Code Section 3702.1.

(k) "Medical bill reviewer" means a person who is not a claims adjuster or medical-only claims adjuster and who only reviews or adjusts workers' compensation medical bills on behalf of an insurer, including employees or agents of the insurer or employees or agents of a medical billing entity. "Medical bill reviewer" also includes an experienced medical bill reviewer.

(l) "Medical billing entity" means a third party that reviews or adjusts workers' compensation medical bills for insurers.

(m) "Medical-only claims adjuster" means a person who, on behalf of an insurer, including an employee or agent of an entity that is not an insurer, is responsible for determining the validity of workers' compensation claims only involving medical workers' compensation benefits, as defined under Article 2 (commencing with Labor Code section 4600) of Chapter 2 of Part 2 of Division 4 of the Labor Code. The medical-only claims adjuster may also establish medical treatment reserves, approve and process medical benefits, and negotiate settlement of medical benefit claims. "Medical-only claims adjuster" also means a person who is responsible for the immediate supervision of a medical-only claims adjuster but does not mean an attorney representing the insurer or a person whose primary function is clerical. "Medical-only claims adjuster" also includes an experienced medical-only claims adjuster.

(n) "Post-designation training" means a course of study provided to trained or experienced workers' compensation claims adjusters and medical-only claims adjusters who have been designated by an insurer or provided to trained or experienced medical bill reviewers who have been designated by an insurer or medical billing entity. Post-designation training also includes seminars, workshops, or other informational meetings pertaining to California workers' compensation.

However, if a claims adjuster or medical-only claims adjuster trainee requires leave from his or her employment because of illness, disability, military service, or leave required or permitted by state or federal law, and the leave has begun after the training has started, the training shall be completed within a period not to exceed 24 months after the commencement of the training.

(c) Any classes or courses taken within three (3) years before the effective date of these regulations that satisfy the curriculum requirement may be used to meet the hourly requirements upon verification by the student to the insurer of the type of course taken, the course of study, the date or dates taken, the person or organization providing the class or course, and the number of hours taken.

(f) Failure of a claims adjuster or medical-only claims adjuster who has received a designation pursuant to subdivisions (a) or (b) of section 2592.05 to fulfill the requirements for post-designation training every two years pursuant to subdivisions (d) and (e) above shall result in that person being no longer considered a designated claims adjuster or medical-only claims adjuster. That person shall not be authorized to adjust claims until the requisite number of hours of post-designation training is completed.

(g) The insurer may provide the designation training directly or by sending its employees or its agents to be trained by a training entity for the entire designation curriculum.
