A Board form titled “Notice that Payment of Compensation for Disability has been Stopped or Modified,” that carriers are required to file within 16 days of the date on which benefit payments are stopped or modified. The form includes
- information identifying the claim, injured person, employer and carrier,
- a summary of total disability benefits, partial disability benefits and disfigurement awards paid,
- a summary of the claimant’s return-to-work and earnings status and
- if appropriate, an explanation of why indemnity benefits have not been paid in full. Depending on circumstances cited by the carrier and the claimant’s response, the filing of a C-8/8.6 may or may not trigger an immediate hearing.
