NCCI Data Educational Conference January 31st – February 3rd
I have attended each NCCI Data Educational Conference over the last three years. I will be attending the one this year if there are no travel problems.
Please note this conference is free of charge. The NCCI (National Council on Compensation Insurance) is out of Boca Raton, Florida. At one time in the past, I used to work across the street from their headquarters.
The annual data conference is held the end of January to the first week of February each year. The agenda is very data-driven as should be expected for this conference.
The material covered according to the NCCI webpage are:
- Fundamental reporting rules on all data types—Policy, Proof of Coverage (POC), Unit Statistical, Detailed Claim Information, Financial Calls, and Medical Call
- NCCI’s online data reporting tools, data manuals, circulars, and ncci.com
- New data reporting topics such as state-level nonrenewals, Experience Rating Split Data, financial data comparisons, WCPOLS data file submissions, DCI data quality observations, deductible programs, and medical marijuana
- Electronic reporting requirements, transactions, records, and coding values
- Technical topics such as DSR level premium, claim components, expected DCI claims and medical transactions, federal coverages, wrap-ups, subrogation recovery, audit noncompliance charges, pharmacy benefit manager, and terrorism premium
- State reporting requirements for POC compliance, Unit Statistical data, and PEO arrangements
- Editing processes, error reports, and data quality programs
The conference is not just for data reporters. I have met quite a few people from other disciplines such as marketers, pharmacy managers, and blog reporters. One of the more interesting parts are the changes and anomalies in the reporting data or the state requirements.
NCCI usually performs a bang-up job at any of their conferences. They have always been very helpful and accommodating. NCCI usually provides copies of the handouts online within a few days after the NCCI Data Educational Conference.
