EDI Quality Assurance Department (EDI)

The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission decided to implement the IAIABC’s EDI Standard for the electronic reporting of workers’ compensation claims related data. Once this decision was made, beginning in October 2008, EDI became the required method for the reporting of workplace injuries and all payments made to the injured workers.

The EDI QA Department:

  • Establishes and maintains the EDI standards for employers, carriers and claim administrators to report workplace accidents to the Virginia Workers' Compensation Commission;
  • Enforces compliance with those standards;
  • Supports employers, carriers, and claim administrators who have EDI related issues, questions and/or training needs;
  • Reviews and processes failed transactions to ensure all data is reported accurately and is displayed appropriately in our claims processing system;
  • Performs consolidations when duplicate claims exist;
  • Oversees the EDI vendor contract.

All information regarding the EDI requirements for Virginia along with training aids for filing EDI transactions, can be found under the Documents section to the right of your screen. The Commission’s Implementation Guide contains all information needed to submit EDI to Virginia.

EDI’s Vision

EDI’s Mission

Ensuring data quality in association with the international EDI standard through connection and education within the workers’ compensation community, and in accordance with the Commission’s Core Values of innovation and reliability to the advancement of the Commission and the benefit of those who rely on its services.

Trading Partners

All injuries and corresponding workers’ compensation claims-related data is required to be reported to the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission electronically, via EDI. A Sender/Trading Partner who wishes to administer workers’ compensation claims in Virginia is required to register with the Commission. Registration should be completed at https://wcs.iso.com/tp-register/login and must be done prior to the Commission approving the entity for production in Virginia. Any changes to the information in the profiles must be made immediately through the same registration link. This information is essential to the Commission’s Claims Processing system and our Vendor’s system for the acceptance and rejection of transaction. The Commission’s EDI Quality Assurance Department also uses this information to obtain the appropriate point of contact for EDI related issues for each entity.

Registration Instructions for creating a new account or making updates can be found at https://vwcedi.info/reg-instructions. The Commission also provides a Training Aid for the Trading Partner Registration that provides the importance of this information, terms to know, things to know and common questions.
