Workers Compensation EDI Applications

ELECTRONIC DATA INTERCHANGE (EDI)
TRADING PARTNER AGREEMENT PACKET

Alabama Workers Compensation Division has implemented Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) in an effort to reduce paper filings and become more efficient.  Presently, only the Employer’s First Report of Injury or Occupational Disease, form WCC Form 2, Rev. 6/2006 (First Report of Injury) will be filed using this method. The previous First Report of Injury document, Rev. 4/2006 may be used until exhausted.

Claims section of Workers’ Compensation Division acceptance of First Reports using EDI is contingent upon a properly completed trading partners profile, successful testing, and executed trading partner agreement.  EDI Business Coordinator or EDI Technical Coordinator will notify new partners when these requirements have been satisfied.

Companies interested in using EDI should carefully review and complete the enclosed information.  Additional information may be obtained by contacting our EDI Business Coordinator, LaDon Murray at (334) 353-0600.

EDI Standards

Except for unique peculiarities and/or additional information, Alabama Workers Compensation Division will use electronic standards developed by the International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions (IAIABC), an organization representing workers’ compensation administrators and officials since 1914. Over the years, IAIABC has developed EDI standards in the area of accident reporting.  These standards are defined in the IAIABC EDI Implementation Guide, which is available at:
http://www.iaiabc.org/edi.htm.
