eClaims Overview

The Board has completed upgrading the International Association of Industrial 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 R3.1 is a national standard for trading partners to electronically submit employer claims data.

Most national insurance 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 of success.

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 percent target acceptance rate. Electronic claims filing supports the Board's continuing effort to improve services to New York's injured workers and their employers.
