An extension of the reporting deadline may be granted if the health maintenance organization demonstrates that its delinquency is due to circumstances which it could not reasonably have anticipated or avoided.
In order to be granted an extension, health maintenance organizations shall request an extension of a specific time period in writing at least three working days prior to April 1. If the annual report is not filed by the last day of the extension period, the fine imposed by Minnesota Statutes, section 62D.08, subdivision 4, accrues beginning on the following day.
If the commissioner fails to have the annual report form available for inspection by December 1 as required by part 4685.1920, item A, good cause shall be deemed to exist for health maintenance organizations to have an automatic extension of time in which to file the annual reports. The extension must equal the number of days the commissioner is overdue in having the annual report form available for inspection.
