BWC Tweaks Premium Billing Lead Time


Last week the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) board of directors approved a change to its timing of sending premium invoices. The BWC will send invoices at least 23 days prior to the due date, which is down from at least 29 days. The BWC had originally proposed a minimum 18-day lead time; however, OMA objected to this on behalf of members as too short. Here’s the amended rule and billing chart (see page 8) which shows the new invoicing schedule which starts June 1.
