Proposed Final E-Billing Regulation

On September 18, 2018, the Commission adopted a proposed final E-billing regulation and Companion Guide. After consideration of comments received during the public comment period, the initial proposed regulation has been revised to: (a) change the mandatory effective date from December 31, 2018 to July 1, 2019; (b) clarify and broaden the small provider exemption; (c) add an exemption for small payers; (d) clarify the requirements for electronic payment; and (e) make the regulation consistent with the provisions of the prompt-pay statute (Va. Code. 65.2-605.1). The Companion Guide has been revised to update the Commission’s address and contact numbers and to clarify the requirements for electronic payment.
