§ 69L-56.320 Claims EDI Test and Production Status Requirements.
|(1) Prior to sending an initial test transmission, the claim administrator shall file the EDI Trading Partner forms required in subsection 69L-56.300(2), F.A.C. If a form is incomplete and does not contain responses to all of the required fields in accordance with the form instructions, testing with the Division will not commence until the corrected form(s) is re-filed with the Division.
(2) If the claim administrator has contracted with a vendor to send Claims EDI filings on its behalf to the Division, the claim administrator shall comply with the testing requirements in this section before being approved for production status, even if the vendor has been previously approved by the Division for production status with another client.
(3) During the Claims EDI testing period and until the claim administrator is approved for production status for sending the required electronic form equivalents required by this rule, the claim administrator shall continue to file Forms DFS-F2-DWC-1, DFS-F2-DWC-12, DFS-F2-DWC-13 and DFS-F2-DWC-4 and DFS-F2-DWC-49 in accordance with Rules 69L-3.0045, 69L-3.0091, 69L-3.012, 69L-3.016, 69L-3.0213 and 69L-3.025, F.A.C.
(4) The claim administrator shall send test files in the correct IAIABC Release 3 formats specified in Section 2, Technical Documentation, of the IAIABC Claims EDI Release 3 Implementation Guide, and comply with transmission requirements set out in Rule 69L-56.310, F.AC.
(5) The insurer or claim administrator shall indicate the Maintenance Type Codes (MTC's) it will be sending, if not all MTC's will be initially tested at the same time (e.g., MTC's not required until the insurer's Secondary Implementation Schedule). The claim administrator shall file a revised Form DFS-F5-DWC-EDI-3, EDI Transmission Profile - Sender Specifications, to report any new MTC's that will be added during the test to production periods.
(6) The claim administrator shall also indicate on its Form DFS-F5-DWC-EDI-3, Transmission Profile - Sender Specifications, the frequency with which files will be sent to the Division, i.e., daily, weekly. Test files shall consist of Claims EDI Filings that correspond with Forms DFS-F2-DWC-1, DFS-F2-DWC-12, DFS-F2-DWC-13, and DFS-F2-DWC-4 adopted in Rules 69L-3.025, F.A.C., that were previously mailed to the Division at least one week prior to the date the test transmission containing the corresponding Electronic First Report of Injury or Illness, Electronic Notice of Denial, Electronic Periodic Claim Cost Report, and Electronic Notice of Action or Change, Suspension, and Reinstatement of Indemnity Benefits information is sent to the Division. If the claim administrator is unable to transmit test files on a daily or weekly basis due to a low volume of actual claim filings being mailed to the Division during the specified testing frequency, the claim administrator may create and send "mock" paper and electronic filings for Claims EDI testing purposes. The claim administrator shall clearly mark any mock paper filings as an "EDI Test Filing" and fax the mock paper filings to the Division's Claims EDI Team at (850) 488-3453.
(7) Data element values sent on the test Claims EDI filings shall match values reported on the corresponding paper form filing. If differences are detected and cited in a written parallel analysis report issued to the claim administrator by the Division, the claim administrator shall confirm if the electronic version contained the accurate data, or otherwise provide an explanation for the discrepancy. The claim administrator shall investigate and reconcile its database as necessary in conjunction with data errors identified during the test period(s).
(8) The claim administrator shall send the following minimum number of Claims EDI filings during the test period(s), of which 90% of each of the required categories specified in paragraphs (5)(a) through (f) of this section shall receive an Application Acknowledgement Code of "TA":
