New Arbitrator Resource Available

All panel-of-three hearings are conducted via an audio conference call wherein the arbitrators discuss the arguments and evidence, and, ultimately, what their decision will be.

A new resource is available that reviews the hearing process as well as the hearing workflow, starting with the initial decision entry by the designated primary arbitrator through the approval by the secondary arbitrators.

Visit the Total Recovery Solutions® (TRS®) Resources web page and view the “Hearing a Panel of Three Case in TRS” video, or any of the other informational resources.

You Spoke and We Listened!

Your feedback is important to us. Currently, when a user selects a feature to submit in the filing but returns to previous steps in the workflow to review and/or update something, the selection is removed and must be added again. Based on member feedback, we’ve structured our most recent TRS update to maintain the user’s selection even when backwards navigation occurs.

Your continued feedback helps us to improve the platform and provide you with the best and most efficient service.
