Workers’ Compensation Board

WCB Information Related To Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

eClaims is the New York State Workers' Compensation Board's implementation of an electronic claim reporting standard for reports of injury filings. The Board has adopted a national standard for claims reporting from the International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions (IAIABC): Claims Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Release 3.0. The standard uses Electronic Data Interchange, commonly known as EDI, so that data can be transmitted electronically between the Board and its EDI Trading Partners quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively.

The NYS eClaims Implementation Guide was designed to assist trading partners with the transition from the former paper-based process for filing injury reports to the electronic filing process of First Reports of Injury (FROI) and Subsequent Reports of Injury (SROI) using the IAIABC EDI Claims Release 3.0 standard. The Board continues to recommend that this Guide be used in conjunction with the IAIABC Claims Release 3.0 Implementation Guide.

The Guide and associated content listed below provides detailed guidelines to prepare for testing and implementation with the NYS eClaims EDI process.
