EDI POC Section
The EDI POC Section receives documented proof of workers' compensation coverage from each carrier and self-insured group fund for employees covered by the workers' compensation act. Carriers and insurers submit required information using Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) through one of the state-approved data collection agents. Electronic coverage data is stored in a master database maintained by the EDI POC Section.

Some kind of description here!

* Kentucky DWC will be making a few updates to our EDI tables effective January 1, 2015. These updates include:
  1. Currently, we accept Standard Industrial Codes (SIC) and North American Industry Classification System codes (NAICs) for industry code (DN0025). Beginning January 1, 2015, we will no longer accept SIC codes. We are fully migrating to NAICs for industry code (DN0025). We will accept both 2007 and 2012 NAIC codes.
  2. Employee Date of Hire (DN0061) will become a mandatory field on the MTC 00 and/or MTC 04.
