HB18-1056 - FPPA Fire And Police Pension Association Statewide Standard Health History Form

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning the statewide standard health history form that members of the fire and police pension association complete when commencing employment.

Police Officers' and Firefighters' Pension Reform Commission.

Every member of the fire and police pension association (FPPA), at the commencement of employment, is required to complete a health history on a statewide standard health history form (form). The purpose of the form is to notify FPPA of a member's health history as it exists at the commencement of employment. The employer of a member can be liable for the total payment of disability and survivor benefits that may be awarded to the member if, in addition to other factors, the employer did not file the form with the FPPA.

The bill clarifies several aspects of the form. Specifically, the bill:

 

  • Specifies that all newly hired members are required to fill out the form;
  • Clarifies that the employer must require newly hired members to complete and file the form;
  • Authorizes the board of directors of the FPPA to adopt an electronic format for the completion and filing of the form; and
  • Specifies that any member who omits or conceals, rather than fraudulently conceals, a material fact concerning his or her health history on the form may be disqualified from receiving disability or survivor benefits.
    (Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
