Readers may also wish to contact the person or entity directly to get additional information or clarification about the events that resulted in the order.

​​​​​
The Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) is releasing a revised Minor Injury Guideline (MIG) and Treatment and Assessment Plan (OCF-18) that become effective February 1, 2014.
 
The revised MIG and OCF-18 reflect the recent change made to the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule – Effective September 1, 2010 (SABS), outlined in Bulletin A-07/13, to provide that a pre-existing condition referred to in s. 38 (3) (c) (i) (regarding the MIG) must have been documented by a health practitioner prior to the accident.
 

Health Claims for Auto Insurance

 
Until the revisions to the OCF‑18 (change to the introductory Note box on page 1 and to the second question in Part 4) are reflected in the electronic Health Claims for Auto Insurance (HCAI) system (expected to occur in the summer of 2014), the revisions are to be read-in to HCAI’s existing electronic version of the OCF-18.
 
Insurers and health care providers and clinics should visit the HCAI information website [New Window] (www.hcaiinfo.ca [New Window]) to learn more about how the recent SABS amendments change the OCF-18's completion and processes in the HCAI system.
 
Health care providers are reminded that any attachments to the OCF-18 are to be sent directly to the insurer not to HCAI.
 

Authority

 
The revised MIG is issued pursuant to section 268.3 of the Insurance Act (the Act) and is incorporated by reference in the SABS.  It is expected to be published in the January 25, 2014 edition of The Ontario Gazette.  The revised OCF-18 is issued pursuant to section 66 of the SABS.
 

COPIES

 
The revised MIG and OCF-18 are attached for your information and can also be downloaded from the FSCO website at www.fsco.gov.on.ca.

The Act and amended SABS can be found at www.e-laws.gov.on.ca [New Window].
