The South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission will be mandating XML reporting with the IAIABC’s EDI Claims Release 3.1 standard beginning in October of 2019. The updated 3.1 trading partner tables are attached for your review.
We don’t really know what this means, but you probably do. It sounds like the Workers’ Compensation Commission will require electronic filing of all claims related documents effective October of 2019. Mandatory electronic filing of Forms 12A started on January 1, 2014, and voluntary electronic filing of Forms 18 began on March 2, 2015. The attached tables suggest that the Forms 15, 17 and 19 will require electronic filing this upcoming October.
Please mark your calendars for this exciting event, and please contact us with any questions.
