Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) affords insurers and the Workers' Compensation Division a method of exchanging certain information electronically and thereby avoiding multiple entry of data into computer systems. EDI is fast, accurate, reliable and cost effective. Many insurers nationwide use EDI routinely and the Workers' Compensation Division has worked hard to make this service available for Tennessee's workers' compensation system.

Insurers sign a trading partner agreement with the Workers' Compensation Division. This agreement includes testing the reporting system to determine if the transmission mechanism is acceptable. Upon completion of testing, the Division will notify the trading partner of approval to submit production data. The International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions (IAIABC) offers education on reporting workers' compensation data electronically.

Below is a listing of the forms of the Workers' Compensation Division that are required to be submitted electronically.

Proof of Coverage (POC) Information that must be submitted electronically to a vender that is IAIABC certified and approved by the Workers' Compensation Division. The National Council on Compensation Insurance is IAIABC certified and authorized to submit POC data on each insurance carriers' behalf.
