4123-6-26 Claimant reimbursement.

When the claimant or any other person making payment on behalf of the claimant, including a volunteer, pays for medical services or supplies directly to a health care provider and the claim or condition is subsequently allowed, the payor shall be reimbursed upon submission of evidence of the receipt and payment for that service or supply. The payor will receive no more than the amount that would have been paid to the health care provider as provided by the rules of this chapter of the Administrative Code. However, in cases where the payor is the claimant's health insurer, if the claimant seeks reimbursement for an out-of-pocket copayment and the claimant's health insurer has already been reimbursed or later seeks reimbursement, the claimant may be reimbursed for the copayment and the claimant's health insurer may be reimbursed up to the amount that would have been paid to the health care provider as provided by the rules of this chapter of the Administrative Code. When payment has been made to the health care provider, the payor shall be informed to seek reimbursement from the provider.

The bureau shall inform a claimant or payor whether a health care provider participates in the HPP or QHP.
