New! Improved! VLW Claim Reporting Portal - Implementation Timelines

Wednesday, December 30, 2015 View Comments Comments (0)
WCS and MCI are pleased to announce the launch of a new and improved VLW-Employer Accident Report Portal.  We worked closely with select agencies to learn what would enhance your claim reporting experience and believe you will find the new application and the enhancements an improvement over the existing VLW.
 
Some of the new features include:
  • Web-based access - no more need for software.  Can file claims through your mobile devices.
  • Real-time notifications if two or more users are reviewing or modifying an accident report at the same time.
  • Auto-save feature.
  • Named user will only see their assigned agencies in a drop-down list.
  • No longer necessary to complete a second submission to file the claim.
  • Comprehensive history section will show all EARs submitted by other users of the same agency.
  • Addition of questions regarding return to work and drug/alcohol screening.
Here are some helpful tools for your transition to the new application.
  1. One-page flyer explaining features of new and improved VLW York Employer Accident Report Portal. View here.
  2. York FROI Portal User Manual. View here.
  3. VLW - First Report of Injury Quick User Guide. View here.
  4. Recorded Training - While we think the application is easy to navigate and intuitive, we have recorded training for the application which can be found in the learning center. This will be released to your KC administrators to pull into your portals today.  Please search for the course under:  DHRM-WC-VLW York Employer Accident Report Portal
We are rolling out the application to agencies every two weeks by claim team,  starting the week of December 21, 2015.  Please be on the look-out for an email from Steve Palczynski with the subject: Welcome to the New Employer Accident Report  --  FROI.YORKRSG.COM.  It will include your user name, instructions on setting your password and the link for York's VLW Employer Accident Report Portal.  You will have until January 31, 2016 to transition to the new application.  As of February 1, 2016 you will no longer be able to report accidents through VLW at https://apps.frankgates.com/vaear-hr.  If attempting to do so, you will be directed to the new application.
 
We are excited to offer you this improved accident reporting tool!  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
