XML Forms Submission


Overview

XML Forms Submission provides an infrastructure to allow the submission of data to the Workers' Compensation Board in an industry-standard format (XML -- Extensible Markup Language). This program is designed to offer the medical community the opportunity to engage in industry standard submission of electronic medical forms to the Workers' Compensation Board. The WCB medical form currently supported by the XML submission program is the EC-4NARR. The EC-4NARR is an electronic-only alternative that may be submitted in lieu of a C-4 or a C-4.2.

Board Authorized XML Submission Partners have proven they comply with the Board's requirements for the electronic submission of the EC-4NARR and have executed the required legal agreement with the Workers' Compensation Board. Health Care Providers considering doing business with a Board Authorized XML Submission Partner should request the XML Submission Partner show them a copy of this legal agreement.

Health Care Providers MUST complete the Registration for EC-4NARR XML Forms Submission on the Board's web site before the Workers' Compensation Board will accept their electronic submission of EC-4NARR documents through the XML Forms Submission process. If you are interested in having your EC-4NARR documents submitted to the Board using this XML Forms Submission process, you may contact an XML Submission Partner from the List of XML Submission Partners.

The EC-4NARR may only be submitted to the Board using the XML Form Submission process or the Board's Web Submission process. While the Board will not accept paper copies of the EC-4NARR, payors (carriers and self-insured entities) will accept paper copies.
