Oversight of workers’ compensation policy reporting consists of matching policy data to Utah employers reporting employees.
Since October 1998 Utah has been an electronic data reporting state. All workers’ compensation insurance carriers are required to report policy data through the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) or Insurance Services Office (ISO), these agencies then send the data to the Industrial Accidents Division.
The Utah Workers’ Compensation Act § 34A-2-205 establishes the requirement of insurance carriers to report workers’ compensation policy information to the Industrial Accidents Division. The accuracy of the policy information provided by the insurance carriers assists the Division in identifying uninsured employers for the purpose of bringing them into compliance with the Act.
