Address Reporting—No Physical Location:
State Processing Exceptions:
An insurance carrier that fails to report timely will be fined by the Virginia Workers' Compensation Commission (VWC) a civil penalty of up to $500 for each failure. When the VWC is notified by an employer that it has Proof of Coverage but the coverage has not been filed timely, the VWC offers an opportunity to file. In the event the carrier fails to file promptly, a fine is issued.
To encourage carrier review and compliance, the VWC is also conducting broad quarterly, systematic reviews of all timely filings and fining.
A 30 day period is allowed to request formal review, in writing. Email is not an acceptable means of filing.
