All claims for unusual services or merchandise must be filed on a separate claim form. The funeral home must include a statement if mileage is being requested outside the 20 mile radius. A separate claim form is not required on a
Demonstrator/Anatomical Gift case for customary transportation charges that do not exceed the burial allowance.
The funeral home must verify the difference between the minimum cost of an oversize casket and a standard casket covered by the Department's rate. The funeral home may contact the Funeral and Burial Unit to request prior approval of an oversize
casket. Refer the funeral home to the Funeral and Burial Unit if they contact the FCRC.
