Exchange documents through DWC secure file transfer protocol (SFTP) box

Austin carrier representatives, insurance carriers, and other professional organizations can use SFTP boxes to securely exchange documents electronically with DWC including:

  • Benefit Review Conference (BRC) Exchange, Contested Case Hearing (CCH) exhibits.
  • Subsequent Injury Fund reimbursement requests.
  • Audit and complaint filings.
  • DWC forms and indemnity dispute filings.
  • Medical fee dispute resolution filings.
  • Office of the Medical Advisor filings.
  • Other filings.

Getting started

To request a DWC SFTP box, email including the company name, contact name, title, email, phone, and fax.

Using the DWC SFTP box

SFTP boxes include “To_DWC” and “From_DWC” subfolders. Place filings in the “To_DWC” subfolder. All filings will be stamped with the date received and a copy will be placed in the “From_DWC” subfolder. More information on SFTP file exchange can be found in the Quick guide for document exchange.

For certain filings, such as BRC exchange and CCH exhibits, an Excel spreadsheet, acknowledging all documents received, is created daily and placed in the “From_DWC” subfolder.

File naming and standards

To ensure efficient delivery of filings, use the DWC form type followed by the DWC claim number if available in the naming convention. More information on file naming conventions for specific documents can be found in the guide below.

DWC SFTP Standards Guide.

Other requirements

  • DWC only accepts read-only Portable Document Format (.pdf) documents in the SFTP folder.
  • There is no size limit, however if you must upload files larger than 1 GB, place them in the root directory (where you can see both the “To_DWC” and “From_DWC” folders). When the upload finishes, move the file to the “To_DWC” folder.
  • Remove your files in the “From_DWC” subfolder upon receipt.
  • DWC will remove files delivered in the “From_DWC” subfolder after 30 days.
