The Texas Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) has extended until June 2021 its mandatory data call for information related to COVID-19 injuries reported to selected insurance carriers on or after Dec. 1, 2019.

The data call was originally issued on June 2, 2020.

To ensure that DWC has sufficient information to determine the impact of COVID-19 injuries on the Texas workers’ compensation system, DWC has extended the data call through June 2021.

As a reminder:

  • Only selected insurance carriers/groups are required to comply with the data call. Selected insurance carriers must provide summary data using the COVID-19 data call reporting forms and instructions. Each selected insurance carrier or group is required to provide one data submission per insurance carrier or group.
  • Insurance carriers/groups must submit the requested data to DWC through the insurance carrier Austin representative’s secure file transfer protocol box no later than 5 p.m., Central time to be considered timely.
