In March 2018, NCCI contacted affiliate groups that have been identified as required future Indemnity Data Call reporters. The participation threshold was based on groups with at least 1% market share in any one NCCI state over the most recent three years (overall average = 1% or more), based on 2014–2016 premiums.
These contact letters requested that each affiliate group identify a designated Indemnity Data Call primary contact, using the included contact form—to be submitted to NCCI by June 1, 2018. NCCI will interact with these contacts to assist in each company’s implementation efforts.
While Indemnity Data Call reporting will not begin until mid-2020, we understand the industry efforts required to gear up for this new data type. So, in early April 2018, we released an array of new Indemnity Data Call resources to enable future Call reporters to begin assessing the rules, requirements, record types, coding values, and more for this new program.
These new resources are discussed in the
New Indemnity Data Call Resources circular (PDF). The hub for these resources is the new Indemnity Data Call section which has been added to the Data Reporting page on
ncci.com. All data reporters (including service providers such as TPAs) have direct access to this information. The Web page features these primary new resources:
Implementation Guide—The new
Indemnity Data Call Implementation Guide includes reporting requirements, flat-file record layouts, a data dictionary, coding values, examples, and more
Webinar on Demand—The initial Indemnity Data Call Webinar on Demand training module (Indemnity Data Call—Overview) provides an overview of the features of the new program
NCCI will continue to keep the industry informed via Indemnity Data Call Web page content updates and the release of the Indemnity Data Call “IND” series circulars.
