The CCAP panel claims manual covers statewide compensation policies and procedures, as well as compensation matters specific to appointed cases in the Third and Fifth District Courts of Appeal.
It is counsel’s responsibility to provide explanations for any over-guideline or other extraordinary time/expense claimed. Familiarity with policies, procedures and statewide guidelines in the claims manual will assist counsel to identify normal versus extraordinary claimed items. A claimed item may be recommended for payment if it is over the guideline, but an explanation is always required.
The companion Line-by-Line guide is a practical guide on what tasks should be billed on what line on the claim. This useful guide reflects both JCC and project policies for what goes where.
