First Report of Injury

New Hampshire accepts First Reports of Injury via EDI

Dear Claims Administrators:

Welcome to Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). The New Hampshire Department of Labor, Division of Workers' Compensation is pleased to announce its system for receiving workers' compensation first reports of injury data via EDI. This data will be integrated with other data to make up our Workers' Compensation Information System, which will become a rich resource for analyzing the performance of New Hampshire's workers' compensation system.

The manual, State of New Hampshire Department of Labor, Division of Workers' Compensation EDI Implementation Guide for First Reports of Injury, is intended to be primary resource for the organizations that will become the Division's claims administrators for New Hampshire workers' compensation claims - "Trading Partners".

Some organizations already have substantial experience with EDI, and transmit data to workers' compensation agencies in many states. For them, this Implementation Guide can serve as a reference for New Hampshire-specific protocols. While we have adhered to national EDI standards, New Hampshire's implementation does have minor differences from other states.

This Implementation Guide will be posted on our Web site.

We hope that the start-up of EDI data reporting in New Hampshire will be as smooth and as painless as possible, both for the Division and for our EDI trading partners. New Hampshire, Department of Labor, Division of Workers Compensation is dedicated to full, open communication as a cornerstone of a successful start-up process, and this Implementation Guide is a key element of that communication.
