Class Code: 8864

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 8864 applies to institutions that provide charitable, welfare, or social services to mentally, physically, or emotionally challenged persons, troubled youth, children in crisis, abused persons, persons with financial and employment hardships, and individuals performing drug- or alcohol-related community service. Charitable, welfare, or social service organizations may offer these individuals meals, on-site counseling, case management or client assessments, education, vocational training, and employment. Risks classified to Code 8864 may offer limited medical services such as first aid but not significant medical treatment typically found in hospitals.

Employees assigned to Code 8864 include but are not limited to counselors; resource and referral specialists; case managers who coordinate services of organizations to benefit an individual or family; volunteer coordinators; outside welfare workers; classroom teachers who teach or demonstrate in a classroom environment; cooks; drivers; housekeepers; laundry, security, and maintenance personnel; and medical professionals such as physicians and nurses.

Related Operations Not Classified to Code 8864:

•    Detoxification centers, alcoholic rehabilitation centers, and narcotic rehabilitation centers are classified to Code 8833 or Code 9040.
•    Juvenile detention centers, “boot camps,” and halfway houses for convicts are classified to Code 7720.
•    Group homes with overnight accommodations are classified to Code 8842.
•    Outpatient clinics in which the insured provides counseling services for clients with mental health or substance abuse issues are classified to Code 8832.
•    Clients involved in on-the-job training or weatherization programs, or who work outside the social service organization, and manual laborers not otherwise classified should be classified as if they were direct employees of the entity for which the on-the-job training or work takes place. Direct supervisors or job coaches who perform any of the above duties with the client outside the social service organization should also be classified as if they were direct employees of the entity for which the on-the-job training or work takes place.
•    If a separate operation exists (provided the risk meets the requirements of the Basic Manual Rule), a secondary classification code should be assigned.
•    Certain enterprises may appear to be “charitable, welfare, or social service” organizations but are not classified as such for workers compensation purposes. An example of an operation that is not included in Code 8864 is public housing apartment units where tenants pay subsidized rents based on their annual incomes. The operation of these buildings is classified to a building maintenance code (e.g., Code 9015).
•    Risks that offer charitable, welfare, or social services and provide significant medical assistance are classified to Code 8833—Hospital. For example, Code 8833 includes hospitals, health clinics, mental institutions, and risks that provide detoxification, treatment, and rehabilitation to alcoholics or narcotic addicts. These risks differ from those assigned to Code 8864 because Code 8833 operations include significant medical treatment in addition to sleeping accommodations, food, and counseling; Code 8864 risks offer a minimal amount of medical assistance while providing the services described above.
