In addition to electronically filing First and Subsequent Reports of Injury (FROI/SROI) to the WCB, claim administrators are required to notify parties of interest via paper mailing. Information regarding the generation and mailing requirements for servable paper documents can be found in Section 3.6 of the NYS eClaims Implementation Guide and the NYS Event Table.
The WCB has developed a printable report format of the electronic FROI/SROI filing that contains the information regarding acceptance, partial denial, controversy, and all reports of payments on a claim. This report must be mailed to the claimant and the claimant’s representative, pursuant to §300.22, within one business day of electronic filing with the WCB. The date such notice is actually mailed or otherwise transmitted shall be the date of transmittal, regardless of when received by the intended recipient. Furthermore, Section 110 of the Workers’ Compensation Law provides that a copy of the employer’s report of injury be provided, upon request to the injured worker.
The following table provides a sample of each report completed with data from the NYS Business Scenarios. Consult the NYS Event Table to determine when, and to whom, each report should be mailed. Please note that Section 3.6 of the NYS eClaims Implementation Guide includes multiple electronic options for how claim administrators can obtain their FROI/SROI transaction report for each successfully submitted filing, thus, relieving the claim administrator from the burden of manually generating the paper reports. Note: Only forms that are required for mailing are include in the zip files. Please see 3.6.4 of the NYS eClaims Implementation Guide for more information. Any forms that are not in the zip file can be printed from eCase or eClaims Inquiry.
