What is EDEX?

EDEX stands for Electronic Data Exchange. In 1994 the California Division of Workers’ Compensation developed EDEX to provide electronic access to California workers compensation case information. EDEX allows access to all public record court records from the Workers Compensation Appeals Board from 1989 to present.

Authorized users can search for records by SSN or WCAB case number and can also file liens and track case status electronically if so desired.

Reliable and Accurate Source.

California Workers’ compensation insurance provides businesses and their employees’ protection from the financial impact of the job accidents. It annually provides benefits to more than 600,000 Californians and today covers approximately 550,000 California employers.

To accurately measure the cost of providing these benefits, the WCIRB performs a number of functions, including collection of premium and loss data on every worker” compensation insurance policy, examination of policy documents, inspections of insured businesses, and test audits of insurance companies. Each of these activities helps ensure the quality of the WCIRB’s data.

Once the data is collected, complex statistical and actuarial techniques are used by the WCIRB to produce advisory pure premium rates for workers’ compensation insurance. These advisory rates are used as a benchmark for insurance companies as they develop their own premium rates for specific types of businesses. The information is also used to produce experience modifications for eligible employers.
