(a) The claims of an insured (subrogor) and an insurer (subrogee) for damages arising
out of the same incident constitute a single claim. The total award of combined claims may not exceed the monetary jurisdiction of the
settlement authority. If the total award of the combined claims exceeds, or is expected to exceed, a settlement
authority's limits, the settlement authority is not permitted to consider either,
and the claim file will be forwarded to an appropriate settlement authority.
(b) An insured (subrogor) and an insurer (subrogee) may file a claim jointly or separately. If the insurer has fully reimbursed the insured, payment will only be made to the
insurer. If separate claims are filed, the settlement will be made payable to each claimant
to the extent of that claimant's undisputed interest. If joint claims are filed, the settlement will be sent to the insurer.
(c) Each claimant shall include with a claim, a written disclosure concerning insurance
(1) The names and addresses of all insurers;
(2) The kind and amount of insurance;
(3) The policy number;
(4) Whether a claim has been or will be presented to an insurer, and, if so, the amount
of that claim; and whether the insurer has paid the claim in whole or in part, or
has indicated payment will be made.
(d) Each subrogee shall substantiate an interest or right to file a claim by appropriate
documentary evidence and shall support the claim as to liability and measure of damages
in the same manner as required of any other claimant. Documentary evidence of payment to a subrogor does not constitute evidence of liability
of the United States or conclusive evidence of the amount of damages. The settlement authority makes an independent determination on the issues of fact
and law based upon the evidence of record.
(e) An insurance or other subrogated claim is not payable under Subparts E, F, or G of
