For all patient visits to the office, we bill the same as an OHIP bill and just flag it at the beginning as a WSIB encounter. They are paid the same as an OHIP claim.

WSIB Forms Completed by Doctor

  • Each doctor can apply for their WSIB Billing number before submitting invoices
  • The clinical visit of a patient concerning a WSIB claim is processed with other OHIP billing and by changing the ‘Billing Type’ to ‘Bill WSIB’
  • This invoicing directly to WSIB is for filling out the WSIB forms
  • The form is the invoice when filled out with the appropriate billing code
  • There is also payment for letters requested for WSIB. Affix a label to a copy of the letter with the appropriate WSIB code
