Updates to AF's Arbitration Rules

Total Recovery Solution (TRS) will become the exclusive platform for all automobile subrogation arbitration program cases (cases filed in our Auto program) on October 1, 2019. Additional coverages/forums will be added in 2020 and 2021 (PIP, Med Pay, Property, and Special Arbitration).

As we upgrade Online Filing (OLF) to the TRS technology platform, we want to share updates to the Rules noting TRS terminology and changes for new Auto filings effective October 1, 2019.

Substantive updates include:
  • Rule 2-1 and 2-2: Amendments and reschedules are replaced by revisits and extensions in TRS; Materials Due Date is replaced by Due Date; all supporting evidence must be attached to the filing; and allowance is made for counterclaims where salvage is pending at the time of the original filing.
  • Rule 2-6: Companion claims across different coverage lines will be heard separately in TRS.
