Remember the September 1, 2018 Deadline to file the Opioid Prescribing Policy Reporting Form
Just a final reminder that a workers’ compensation insurer (or self-insured employer) is required to submit a report to the Utah Insurance Department on or before September 1, 2018 indicating whether or not the insurer has adopted an opioid policy as set forth in UCA § 31A-22-615.5. The Department has published on its website at www.insurance.utah.gov/bulletins, the applicable reporting form (Opioid Prescribing Policy Form). Again, this form is due no later than September 1, 2018. The form includes specific instructions for submission. Failure to file the report by September 1st each year may subject the insurer to the enforcement penalties under UCA §31A-2-308.
