(2) submission of a uniform claim form on electronic media.
(b) If the information entered on the form is incomplete, the insurer may return the form to the provider for completion if necessary to process the claim.
(c) If additional information is essential to the insurer's proper handling of the claim, the insurer may seek that information by letter, investigative inquiry, or other reasonable means of communication.
