EDI Implementation

EDI Letter (September 16, 2010)

The SBWC Electronic Filing Mandate in 2009 required that all new lost time claims with date of injury after June 30, 2009 or new lost time claim be submitted via EDI. The Board granted a final extension to organizations until September 1, 2010 to implement IAIABC Release 3 EDI transmission of all new lost time claims and the subsequent supported forms.

With the expiration of the extensions no paper forms WC-1s, WC-2s, WC-2a, WC-3s, or WC-4s will be accepted by the Board for new lost time claims from Insurers, Self-Insurers, Group Funds and Third Party Administrators who are registered as EDI Trading Partners with the State of Georgia.

Maintenance of claims with date of injury prior to July 1, 2009 may be continued in paper or by registered users of the Board’s online claims filing system.
