Carriers that need to configure CDX to transfer WCIndemnity (WCIND) data files to DE, MA, MI, NJ, NY or PA need to complete the following steps:
1. Transfer Permissions: If you are transferring files using SFTP or FTPS, the FTP Account that will be used must be granted Transfer Permissions to the WCIND product. Likewise, if you are using the ETR Web Upload feature, WCIND Transfer Permissions must be granted to the web user account that will be using this feature. Your Group Administrator can perform this task by accessing the Transfer Permissions page under the Admin | MyUMG menu.
2. ETR Notifications: Your Group Administrator should specify the email address for ETR notifications. They can configure this by accessing the Admin | MyUMG | Carrier page. For each carrier within your group, access the ETR Response Setup tab, click the WCIND checkbox and enter the notification email address as well as the # of Days to be used on the ETR Log.
3. File Naming Conventions: Please review the CDX User Guide for information on file naming standards.
4. Testing: If you would like to submit a test file, please contact the independent bureaus to coordinate. Contact information can be found on the Contact Us page.
For WCIndemnity submissions to CA, MN, NC and WI, please contact the independent bureaus for instructions.
CDX has resolved the following defects. Please review to determine if these impacted you:
Fixes deployed 9PM ET, Friday, March 6th:
- Loss Totals: Loss Totals are now correctly left padded with zeroes in the WCSTAT files if you used the Calculate Totals option on the Loss Totals screen.
Fixes deployed 9PM ET, Thursday, March 5th:
- Loss Totals: A script was run to fix issues with submission files that did not have left zero padding on Loss Totals. This issue was only present if a user clicked the Calculate Totals button on Losses and did not subsequently save.
- Losses: Sort order of “P” and “R” records
- Exposure: Calculate buttons should only be available for 01/00 reports
Fixes deployed 9PM ET, Friday, February 28th:
- When creating a M-Multiple Record Correction (Excluding Link Data), the system is changing the correction to M-Multiple Record Correction (Including Link Data)
Fixes deployed 9PM ET, Thursday, February 27th:
- WCSTAT files submitted to bureaus reported the incorrect TYPE OF NON-STANDARD ID CODE in position 161-162.
- Users reporting system error messages when using the Validate USR or Delete Split buttons. These appeared to only be present when the USR did not have any ‘Above the line’ exposures.
- Exposure: Unable to use the Print USR button.
- Losses: Unable to edit claims when the USR had more than 100 claims
Fixes deployed after 9PM ET, Tuesday, February 25th:
- Exposure: When clicking the ‘Add Exposure’ button on a USR that has an experience modification, BEEP zeroed out the existing experience modification and the user had to re-enter it. This fix was deployed the evening of February 25th.
Fixes deployed after 9PM ET, Monday, February 24th:
- Exposure: If a USR had more than one split, the experience mod factor from split 1 was defaulting to split 0. If you created submission files between February 23rd through Monday February 24th, please review that the experience mod factors on split USRs were reported properly.
CDX is pleased to announce the upcoming rollout of their new website: www.cdxworkcomp.org. This new site will provide improved navigation along with a more modern presentation. On November 2nd, the CDX website and FTP site will be unavailable and www.accct.org will transition to www.cdxworkcomp.org. After November 2nd, CDX will automatically redirect users to the new site and users should update saved bookmarks and links.
FTP users will have until Saturday, January 4th, 2020, to make any associated FTP configuration changes.
As of March 2nd, 2019, CDX will no longer support the IDEA-CBC-SHA cipher for the FTPS server. The removal of this cipher is due in part to its security vulnerability as well as to our increased efforts to continue to provide safe and secure transmission of your data. If you are using the IDEA-CBC-SHA cipher, please take the necessary steps to disable it from your FTPS clients or server products before the above stated date to ensure uninterrupted transmission of data to CDX.
