The Insurance Commissioner issued a June 28, 2022 Decision on the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau of California (WCIRB) September 1, 2022 Regulatory Filing. Since then, the WCIRB has issued over 90 percent of the January 1, 2023 experience modifications (X-Mods) that insurers, agents/brokers and policyholders rely on for January policy renewals.
The following are several tools to access published X-Mods and check the status of a pending X-Mod. The WCIRB provides these tools for member insurers and their authorized third party administrators (TPAs) and managing general agents (MGAs) as well as licensed agencies and brokerages. See the How to Access X-Mods: A Comparison of WCIRB Products chart for various ways to access X-Mods.
Insurer and agent/broker users of WCIRB Connect can view the X-Mod for any policyholder. Authorized users may view and download a PDF of published experience rating worksheets (ratesheets). Insurers are also able to search their own policies for X-Mods that are still pending due to missing data.
X-Mod Direct® allows Connect users to request an email when a new or revised X-Mod is issued for a specific policyholder. To set an alert, click the "Subscribe to X-Mod Direct" button in the ribbon at the top of the Policyholder Details screen.
Authorized users can quickly obtain detailed policyholder information in Connect with the CRS Report. The automated process will request authorization directly from the policyholder. The report includes the following information:
