The Division of State Group Insurance is directed to competitively procure: (1) Postpayment claims review services for the state group health insurance plans established pursuant to s. 110.123. Compensation under the contract shall be paid from amounts identified as claim overpayments that are made by or on behalf of the health plans and that are recovered by the vendor. The vendor may retain that portion of the amount recovered as provided in the contract. The contract must require the vendor to maintain all necessary documentation supporting the amounts recovered, retained, and remitted to the division; and

The Department of Management Services shall submit budget amendments pursuant to chapter 216 in order to obtain budget authority necessary to expend funds from the State Employees’ Group Health Self-Insurance Trust Fund for payments to the vendor as provided in the contract. The Department of Management Services shall adopt rules providing a process for verifying dependent eligibility.
