O – Optional – Data Elements identified as Optional may be entered but are not required. WC-1-EDI-9 (03-12) AI American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com Special Notes 1) Report the wage information as the average weekly wage (AWW) of the employee. These rules apply for calculating the average weekly wage. a) If the employee’s wage is fixed by the year, the AWW is the yearly wage divided by 52; b) If the employee’s wage is fixed by the month, the AWW is the monthly wage multiplied by 12 and divided by 52; c) If the employee’s wage is fixed by the week, that amount is the AWW; d) If the employee’s wages are fixed by the day, hour or output, the numerator is the actual gross wages earned by the employee in the last thirteen calendar weeks immediately preceding the week in which the injury occurred; and the denominator is 13 to calculate the AWW. i) The formula is: Actual gross wages earned in prior 13 weeks/13=AWW. For example, the employee’s hourly wage is $9.00/hour. The overtime rate is $13.50/hour. The employee works 40 hours per week at $9.00 an hour plus occasional overtime. Employee worked overtime of 44 hours in the 13-week period immediately preceding the week of the injury. The employer has employed the employee for 2 years. The gross wages are $9.00 X 40 hours X 13 weeks = $4,680. You also need to include the overtime 44 hours. Therefore, $13.50 X 44 hours = $594. The total wages are $4,680 plus $594 = $5,274. The AWW is $5,274/13=$405.69. ii) If the employee misses nonconsecutive workdays during the 13-week period in multiples of 5 and receives no compensation, such as sick or other leave, those days shall be subtracted from the denominator. For example: if the employee misses 5 days, one week is subtracted from 13 and the denominator becomes 12; if the employee misses 10 days, two week are subtracted from 13 and the denominator becomes 11; and so on. iii) Partial weeks of time missed by the employee do not count to change the denominator. For example: if the employee misses 4 days, the denominator is 13; if iv) If the employee works less than 13 weeks but more than 2 weeks, the AWW is the same formula with the numerator as the gross wages calculated for the number of weeks of employment and the denominator is the number of weeks of employment. For example, the employee worked for the employer 8 weeks the employee misses 6 days, one week is subtracted from 13 and the denominator becomes 12; and so on. prior to the week of the injury. The employee was paid $9.00 per hour and worked 40 hours per week. The employee worked 13 hours of overtime. The overtime rate is $13.50. The gross wages are $9.00 X 40 hours X 8 weeks plus $13.50 X 13 hours = $3,055.50. The AWW is $3,055.50/8=$381.94. e) If the employee works less than two weeks the AWW shall be equivalent to the AWW for the same or similar employment. However, if the employer has agreed to a certain hourly wage, then the hourly wage agreed upon multiplied by the number of weekly hours scheduled shall be the employee’s AWW. 2) When the Date Returned to Work is more than three days from the Date Disability Began, the workers’ compensation case will be considered an indemnity case. You will receive a request for the cost of medical treatment, the date returned to work, and the total amount of temporary total disability benefits paid to the employee. 3) When Initial Treatment Code is reported as equal to 00, 01 or 02, the case will be considered as a medical only case. If the time period between the Date Disability Began and the Date Returned to Work is three days or less, the case will be classified as a medical only case. You will receive a request for the cost of medical treatment and the date returned to work, if not supplied. After all required information has been filed and there is no further activity on a case for six months, the case may be administratively closed. When the Initial Treatment Code is reported as equal to 03, 04 or 05, the case will be considered as an indemnity case. You will receive a request for the cost of medical treatment, the date returned to work, and the total amount of temporary total disability benefits paid to the employee. 4) The following are examples of First Aid treatment. a) Use of non-prescription medication at non-prescription strength. b) Cleaning, flushing or soaking wounds on the surface of the skin. c) Using wound coverings such as bandages, Band-Aids, gauze pads, etc. or using butterfly bandages or Steri-Strips. (Other wound closing devises such as sutures, staples, glues, etc. are considered medical treatment.) d) Use of any non-rigid means of support such as an elastic bandage, wrap, or non-rigid belt. (The use of devices with rigid stays or other systems designed to immobilize body parts is considered medical treatment.) e) Use of temporary immobilization devices (e.g., splints, slings, neck collars, etc.) while transporting an accident victim. f) Removing splinters or foreign material from areas other than the eye by irrigation, tweezers, cotton swabs, or other simple means. g) Use of finger guards. h) Drinking of fluids for relief of heat stress.
