The North Carolina Industrial Commission today, Monday, March 1, 2021, sent out the following notice:
“Effective March 1, 2021, all carriers, third-party administrators, and self-insured employers are required to provide the Commission with an email address for receipt of claim-related documents. The designated email address shall be provided to the Commission at firstname.lastname@example.org. The email address provided will be used in cases where the Commission does not have an individual email address for the claims representative assigned to the claim. (See Rule 11 NCAC 23A .0109(d)). Providing an email address is mandatory and will insure timely receipt claim-related documents.”
