How NCCI Provides POC Data to State
  • NCCI POC Daily Format
  • Proof of Coverage Inquiry
POC Timeliness Reporting Requirements
Transaction Received Date

NCCI’s received date is used to determine timeliness on POC transactions accepted by the state.


Statute does not mandate time frame. NCCI requires policies to be submitted within 30 days of Policy Effective Date.

POC Notices may be submitted if the policy will not be issued within 30 days after the Policy Effective Date. This does not eliminate the need to submit the policy.


Due 10 days prior to the Cancellation Effective Date for nonpayment of premiums.

Due at least 30 days prior to the Cancellation Effective Date for all other cancellations.


Statute does not mandate time frame. NCCI requires Reinstatements to be submitted within 30 days of Reinstatement Effective Date.


Missouri is a continuous coverage state. Nonrenewals are required 60 days prior to the effective date of the nonrenewal.
