Indicator 3: Promptness of Submitting the First Supplemental Reports

Indicator Description:  

This indicator measures insurers’ compliance with DWD 80.02(2)(b) relating to the submission of First Supplementary Reports, form WKC-13s, to the Department.

Compliance Requirement:  

DWD 80.02(2)(b) establishes a requirement that insurers submit a First Supplementary Report, form WKC-13, on or before the 30th day following the day on which the injury occurred.

Standard or Benchmark:  

While there is no performance standard set by statute or rule the benchmark used for training purposes is that 80% of all required First Supplementary Reports are to be submitted timely per DWD 80.02(2)(b).

Source of Indicator Data:  

The source of the data is the "date of injury" and "last day worked". The program selects only the First Supplemental Reports received during the evaluation quarter. Only First Supplementary Reports that are "first final" (all first payment data has been reported) and were received during the quarter are measured. Only claims for compensable injuries are included in the measurement; full denials, no-lost-time claims and hearing loss claims are excluded.

Computation Methodology:  

Promptness of the First Supplementary Report is measured by computing the number of days from the date of injury, or last day of work prior to the first day of lost time that caused the claim to become compensable, whichever is later, to the date the "first final" WKC-13 was received by the Department.

What This Indicator Measures:

This indicator reflects the individual and combined performance of about 180 insurers with respect to their promptness of submitting First Supplementary Reports to the Department. These insurers account for over 90% of the claims submitted. The benchmark for training purposes is that 80% of all required First Supplementary Reports be submitted to the Department timely. Data is updated quarterly.

Explanatory Comments for Current Indicator:

At the end of the 4th quarter 2017 performance is at 85%. 12 quarter performance sits at 87%. Both of these comfortably exceed the 80% benchmark. Late reporting of lost time injuries by employers is one factor that adversely affects the timeliness of first supplemental reports. Continued education of employers by insurers regarding the importance of prompt lost time injury reporting should allow for more improvement in this measure.

Indicator 3: Promptness of First Supplemental Reports
Group A - Large Insurers (400 claims or more per year)
Group B - Medium Size Insurers (65-399 claims per year)
Group C - Small Size Insurers (equal to or greater than 65 claims every 3 years)

PLEASE NOTE: Quarterly summary reports are static. As such they are a snapshot of performance reflected by our database on the 14th day of every new quarter. As such, actual performance may be different due to changes to the claims for the given quarter after the reports are run.
