The bill limits the definition of overpayments of workers'
compensation benefits to include only benefits paid as a result of fraud or
duplicate benefits that result from offsets that reduce disability or death
benefits paid to a claimant. The bill also:
  • Clarifies that this limit does not prevent an insurance
carrier from receiving a credit against permanent disability

benefits for temporary disability benefits paid beyond the
date of maximum medical improvement; and
  • Prohibits the director of the division of workers'
compensation or an administrative law judge from
reopening an award of benefits paid to a claimant due to an
overpayment except in limited, specific circumstances.
