The Board is in the process of upgrading from the International Association of Accident Boards and Commissions' (IAIABC) Claims Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Release 3.0 (R3.0) to the IAIABC's Claims EDI Release 3.1 (R3.1). The IAIABC's Claims EDI is a national standard for Trading Partners to electronically submit employer claims data. Currently, six states have adopted Claims EDI R3.1, and another seven states are scheduled for adoption through 2022. The implementation date has been postponed until later in 2021, but no earlier than October 2021, for Trading Partners to transition from R3.0 of the standard to R3.1 for submissions to New York State. An exact date will be communicated to Trading Partners as soon as possible.
In keeping with the IAIABC guidelines, the eClaims EDI R3.1 Requirement Tables and Implementation Guide are provided on the eClaims website. The Board is also conducting monthly webinars to provide eClaims EDI R3.1 updates to Trading Partners. For more information, see the Trading Partners Webinars.
More about the project:
Most national carriers already use the Claims EDI R3.1 standard in the jurisdictions that have adopted it. The technology is recognized as the national best practice for First Report of Injury/Subsequent Report of Injury (FROI/SROI) and has a proven track record.
The Board continues to collaborate with Trading Partners in the workers' compensation industry to confirm that their electronic filings are accurate and meet the established 90% target acceptance rate. Electronic claims filing supports the Board's continuing effort to improve services to injured workers of New York and their employers.
Additional updates on the status of the Board's upgrade from Claims EDI R3.0 to R3.1 will be provided on this site. If you would like to receive email notifications regarding these updates, please sign up through WCB Notifications.
