RI Division of Workers' Compensation has implemented a new workers' compensation information system. We are in the process of issuing an RFP for EDI vendor services for Claims Release 3 standard. We anticipate the RFP could be awarded by April 1, 2013 and testing could start by September 1, 2013. Voluntary submission could begin January 1, 2014. We anticipate mandatory submission by January 1, 2015.
We will concentrate initially on FROI maintenance type codes 00 and CO, then 01, AU, and UR. Accepting 02 will depend on test results. We will not accept 04 because the first report is a notice and not a claim for benefits in RI, so it is inappropriate to deny a first report.
We will concentrate on accepting SROI maintenance type codes IP, PY, RB, Sx, and FN. Accepting any maintenance type codes will depend on test results.
