The MCS EC system automatically generates most WC/PDB paragraphs based on the information
coded on the application screens. There are a limited number of WC/PDB paragraphs
(known as universal text identifiers (UTIs)) that can be requested. UTIs are NL 00725.005 – MCS Universal Text Identifiers (UTIs). Instructions for completing MCS notices
are in MSOM MCS 009.010 – Notice 3 (NOT 3) and MSOM ORS 002.003 – FO/PC Requested
and Dictated Paragraphs.
If additional information is needed in the notice, see DI 52155.0351.b. in this section.
If dictated language needs to be added, see DI 52155.0351.c. in this section.
a. Systems generated UTIs - WCP
Paragraphs that begin with the prefix “WCP” are automatically systems generated based
on offset data entered into MCS. See NL 00725.005 – MCS Universal Text Identifiers (UTIs).
In MCS, UTIs that must be requested are identified with an “R” in the 4th position of the UTI (e.g., WCPR15). If an MCS EC claim requires additional notice
information, select the Notice 3 (NOT 3) screen per MSOM MCS 009.010. Since these
paragraphs are only generated upon request, fill-ins are required.
NOTE: See MSOM ORS 002.003 – FO/PC Requested and Dictated Paragraphs for a list of requested
UTI paragraphs and formatting rules. See NL 00725.005 for a list of generated UTIs to determine if a UTI must be requested.
If the available UTIs do not fully explain the situation, use UTI COPD01 for MCS notice
with the appropriate dictated language added on the NOT3 screen. NOTE: Using dictated language always generates an “R” or Review notice alert. Any notice
with dictated language is reviewed in the processing center (PC) prior to release.
See NL 00719.025 – Dictated Text (NOT) Screens for processing dictated text.
