The WCIRB Governing Committee has approved revisions to the California Medical Transaction Data Quality Assurance Program effective January 2019. Besides clarifying existing provisions, the revised program specifies a timeline by which insurers that become newly eligible to participate in the Program are required to begin reporting medical transaction data. The name of this program has also been simplified to the WCIRB Medical Transaction Data Quality Program.
In line with the WCIRB’s Straight Through Processing Initiative, we have implemented significant enhancements to streamline our policy and USR data validation processes and utilize the most effective approaches toward focusing on ensuring timely, complete and accurate data essential for promulgating experience modifications and for ratemaking and research activities.
