20 The Commission form Insurer's Termination of Medical Benefits C-10 is revised and all should use the new form immediately.   It is located on our Forms & Instruction page.
1 Practitioners – Note the following requirements when filing a set-with request (Request for Action on Filed Issues H-25R):
  • Issues (form H-24R) must be pending in each case for the set-with to be applied.
  • Request a set-with only when there are issues pending in all involved claims. When there are no issues, but parties want the Commissioner informed of prior awards in a claim, the party shall provide a copy of the award to the Commissioner at the hearing as part of the exhibit.
  • Send a copy of the request to opposing counsel in all claims.
  • Claims that are set together must be for the same claimant or a different claimant involved in the same accident (same date and time).
  • When a request to set-with is filed after a claim has been scheduled for hearing, the Commission will administratively continue the claim in order to reschedule a new hearing date where all of the cases may be heard together.
  • When a request to set-with is filed after issues are filed in one of the claims but no hearing date has been scheduled, file a set-with request (form H-25R) in each of the claims involved. Remember, there must be pending issues in each claim in order to have them set together.
  • If you are requesting a continuance on cases that have been set together, remember to list each claim number on the continuance request (form H-28R).

    If a set-with does not meet the above requirements, a notice will be sent advising that the request is not granted because it is incomplete and is not in compliance with COMAR §14.09.03.15 (A)(3). No action will be taken on the request.
