The WCIRB Transaction Data Quality Program was created to meet the WCIRB’s ratemaking and research needs and respond to the California Department of Insurance directive to collect medical and indemnity transaction data. National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) groups that write at least 0.5 percent of the California workers’ compensation market are required to submit this transaction data to the WCIRB. Insurers newly eligible to participate in transaction data reporting are required to begin reporting their transaction data to the WCIRB within one year of notification of eligibility.
The due date for Indemnity Data Call transactions is the last calendar day two months after the transaction month. Please refer to the WCIRB Medical Data Call Reporting Guide or the WCIRB Indemnity Data Call Reporting Guide for more details.
The Transaction Data Quality Notice is sent to insurer participants each quarter and provides a summary of the submission completeness for the reporting quarter, successful match rate to other WCIRB data sets and data quality edit results for key reporting values. The Fine and Credit Notice provides any quarterly fine imposed as stated in the program.
