California Code of Regulations, Title 2, § 649.31. Reimbursement Sources

In the event that other reimbursement sources are disclosed as required during verification, the applicant shall obtain and provide a written explanation of such benefits from the insurer, or benefit program setting forth a determination of eligibility as regards the victim, the victim's survivors, or derivative victim as well as the dollar amount of assistance or reparations to which the victim, the victim's survivors, or derivative victim is entitled. In the event that the applicant is unable to obtain an explanation of benefits, the VCP or joint powers victim witness center shall take steps to obtain such explanation of benefits or other verification from the insurer or benefit program. If a supplemental claim or expense is directly related to the qualifying crime and requested information is not received after a reasonable amount of time, the supplemental claim or expense will be considered allowed. However, no payment will be made until the necessary information regarding reimbursement sources is received.
