Gain Access to Answers, Not Just Manuals

Posted Date: December 18, 2020

With NCCI’s Atlas Initiative, we’re introducing new ways of navigating to the information you need for daily tasks or answering questions about workers compensation insurance.

We’re starting by restructuring our most widely used manuals, focusing on:

  • the Basic Manual at the topic level
  • new Residual Market Manual, focusing on rules and rates for the residual market
  • the Scopes® Manual at the state, code, and phraseology levels

NCCI’s Atlas Initiative Roadmap

Because NCCI’s Atlas Initiative is a multiyear effort, you’ll see changes over time. The goal of the project is to deliver these features and more:

  • easier navigation to topics of interest by state
  • quick access to individual state manual rules
  • intuitive content connections through an improved search experience
  • ability to download PDF versions of manuals

For the Basic Manual due to the size and number of exhibits attached to the item filing, NCCI is submitting the item filing to each state regulator individually. NCCI has divided its states into three groups; the item filings will be submitted to the regulators group by group, beginning in December 2020 and through January 2021.
