NH: Early Offers Bill Approved by House; Goes to Conference Committee

Last week, the House version was amended.  Under the Senate bill, if the claimant requested an early offer and then declined it, the claimant would have to prove gross negligence to a clear and convincing standard.  In the House version, if the claimant requested an offer and then declined it, the claimant would have to pay the health care provider's attorney's fees if the claimant lost or recovered approximately the same amount of money that was in the early offer.  Both bills passed with veto-proof majorities.  The Concord Monitor has the story here (scroll down past the first section on sealed bids).
