New Forms for Data Exchange Gateway (DEG) Participation
June 3, 2014
The Michigan Workers’ Compensation Agency recently started accepting forms 400, 401, 100, 107, and 701 via upload through Michigan Data Exchange Gateway (DEG), a secure website.
Uploaded forms will only be accepted from carriers approved to write workers’ compensation in Michigan, approved self-insurers, and approved group self-insurers or servicing agents approved to act on their behalf. To obtain approval for a servicing agent, the self-insured employer or group fund must submit form WC-450, Application for Authorization by Self-Insured Employer or Group Fund for Servicing Agent DEG User Account.
All uploaded forms must be single page documents, with no attachments. Forms with attachments must continue to be sent by regular mail. Multiple single page documents may be submitted in a single upload as long as each individual document is identified by the form number at the beginning of each document name.
An insurance carrier group can have no more than one user account.
Those interested in participating must complete form WC-460, Application for DEG User Account, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the form is received and approved, the necessary instructions on how to send forms via Michigan Data Exchange Gateway, including user ID, password, etc., will be provided.
Forms WC-450 and WC-460 can be found on the Forms page under Misc. Forms.
