While the WCIRB successfully publishes most experience modifications at least 60 days prior to their effective date, there are times when an experience modification (X-Mod) cannot be published due to missing or incomplete data.
The following are the most common reasons that the WCIRB cannot publish an X-Mod:
Insurer and agent/broker users of WCIRB Connect can view the X-Mod status for any policyholder's Bureau Number from the Policyholder Details page. In addition, insurer users may use the Search Pending Ratings feature to find X-Mods for their own policies that have not been issued due to Missing Experience or Experience Rating errors. By clicking on the X-Mod Status field, the user can view details regarding the cause of the delay. For tips on using WCIRB Connect, login and view the Quick Start Guides in the Knowledge Center.
In response to user feedback, the WCIRB is working on an enhancement to WCIRB Connect that will add more detail regarding the X-Mod status to the Policyholder Details page. These enhancements are on track to be launched later this year.
Insurers and licensed agents and brokers may use WCIRB Connect’s X-Mod Direct® feature to be notified automatically of any changes to an X-Mod for a specific policyholder. You can subscribe to a specific Bureau Number and receive an email whenever an X-Mod is issued or revised.
Setting an alert is easy and free. From the Policyholder Details screen on the WCIRB Connect website, look for the "Subscribe to X-Mod Direct" ribbon button at the top of the screen. Click on the button to subscribe and receive an e-mail notification whenever an X-Mod is published for that Bureau Number.
