Classification Code Correction 8810 and 8742
We have a Classification Code Correction for 8810 and 8742 – the Standard Exception Codes. I had posted previously in this post concerning the All Employees designation under certain class codes. I knew the rule, but I was in a hurry to get the post out and made a misquote. I am glad that many Workers Compensation premium auditors including our auditors, insurance company premium auditors, and auditors for auditing companies all emailed me very quickly to correct my incorrect post.
In the last paragraph you seem to be saying that an “all employees” notation precludes the use of the standard exception codes. That is not how I read rule 1-D-4 in the users guide. They seem to say that a class including “all employees” still uses the standard exception codes unless one or more standard exception codes is specifically precluded, such as 7720 – Juvenile Detention Center- all employees & salespersons, drivers – this wording would still allow the separate classification of employees under 8810.
Regarding your recent post on the difference between 8742 & 8810 which states:
“I have noticed very recently some of the class codes now include an “all employees” notation. The “all employees” designation on a class code means there are not Standard Exception Codes that will be accepted for a certain type of employer. ”
This is inaccurate. The all employees etc. designation has no bearing on the standard exception codes. The standard exception can be separately rated unless it is specifically mentioned in the phraseology and or phraseology note. With regards to the inclusion of standard exceptions phraseology in some recent code changes, I wrote some of them and had input into the others that were changed.
This is one of those posts that I rushed to produce. Thanks to all for correcting my mistyping. What I had meant to say is in bold above. Thanks to Carlos, Spencer, and others for making me toe the line.
