The FROI/SROI tab displays the information transmitted electronically by claim administrators in eCase.
There are three tabs on the FROI/SROI tab:
In addition, there will be copies of servable documents in the case folder. These pdfs are created from the electronic FROI/SROI transmissions. Samples of these documents may be found on the eClaims Transaction Reports page.
- Claim Administrator
- The organization that administers a workers' compensation claim. It can be an insurer, a licensed third-party administrator (TPA), a self-insured employer, a self-insured group trust, or a guarantee fund.
- First Report of Injury (FROI)
- The data transaction that occurs early in a workers' compensation claim. The FROI is most commonly the initial report of injury for a claim. A FROI may also be a denial of a claim.
- Subsequent Report of Injury (SROI)
- A record of an event sent to the Board that completes a subsequent report of injury requirement.
- Legacy Claim
- Any claim that already exists in the Board's claim system with a case number at the time the claim administrator begins transmitting data electronically.
- Maintenance Type Code (MTC)
- A two-character code that identifies the claim event that requires the filing of a FROI or SROI. In text that refers to FROI and SROI transactions, MTC immediately follows "FROI" or "SROI."
- Servable Document
- A printable copy of the FROI or SROI transaction found in the case folder that can be sent by parties whenever a copy of the document must be filed with the claimant, the claimant's attorney, a health care provider, etc. Any registered eCase user who is a party of interest on the case has access to these documents in eCase.
