Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis:
This rule includes changes to the Insurance Services Office (ISO) code listing to address corrections to several classification specialties as well as new classification specialties. ISO codes are the numerical designation for a health care provider’s specialty and are used to classify the provider for assessment purposes. Errors identified in the ISO codes or specialty narratives for several specialties have been corrected. The Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.) designated ISO codes have been added for two specialties previously listed only under the Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) ISO codes. Additionally, this rule modifies the refund procedures of the fund by no longer requiring the fund to refund, with interest, the $3.00 administrative fee charged for quarterly billing.
