RULE 143.00.05-001. Rule No. 21 - Cost Ceiling on Medical Bills

Rule No. 21

COST CEILING ON MEDICAL BILLS

In connection with claims for payment on medical bills, not covered by insurance, made by victims, the Board will award up to 65% of medical bills, not to exceed a total reimbursement of $10,000. However, for those victims whose injuries are catastrophic and result in a total and permanent disability, the total reimbursement shall not exceed $25,000.

The provider of medical services to whom the award is made will be notified that by accepting the payment of 65% of their bill, they are agreeing not to commence civil actions against the victim or his legal representative to recover the balance due under the bill.

Acceptance of payment for services paid by the Arkansas Crime Victims Reparations Board shall be considered payment in full and bars any legal action for collection.
