MSVIVS Ramping Up

By Brandon L. Guidry February 14, 2017

MSVIVS – OLV Testing

In addition to requiring a book of business (BoB) file by the first Tuesday of each month, Mississippi is currently testing the online verification (OLV) portion of the new Mississippi Vehicle Insurance Verification System (MSVIVS).

The 6 month pilot program for OLV services is expected to begin once the state reaches the target market share required to begin the pilot program, which is 60%. During that time, the service will be available strictly to law enforcement.

MSVIVS – Error Files

The state of Mississippi has begun returning error files as part of the new MSVIVS. Mississippi’s vendor, HDI Solutions, will return errors in two files: the Data Compliance Report and the VIN Rejection Report.

If a policy/vehicle has multiple drivers and the VIN cannot be verified, that VIN/policy will appear multiple times on the VIN Rejection Report, once for each driver. Because of this, insurers may receive a number of errors that appear to be duplicates.

You’ll find a listing of Mississippi error codes below:
