San Francisco, CA – The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) has posted on its rulemaking forum proposed revisions to the Workers’ Compensation Information System (WCIS) Regulations and the two California EDI (electronic data exchange) Implementation Guides published by DWC. The guides are the EDI Implementation Guide for First and Subsequent Reports of Injury (FROI/SROI) and the EDI Implementation Guide for Medical Bill Payment Records, Version 2.0.
The FROI/SROI Guide has not been updated since 2010 and is being revised to improve reporting efficiencies in response to feedback from trading partners and to
increase the usefulness of the FROI/SROI data received by WCIS.
The EDI Implementation Guide for Medical Bill Payment Records, Version 2.0, was updated earlier this year but requires additional revisions to comply with reporting standards set forth in the IAIABC Workers’ Compensation Medical Bill Reporting Implementation Guide, Release 2.0, February 1, 2015 Publication. Compliance with this newer standard is essential to enable WCIS to collect data regarding compound and repackaged drugs.
The proposed regulations and the draft revised Guides will be available on the DWC Forum for public comment until July 20, 2015.
