To the attention of all insurance companies licensed
to transact automobile insurance in Ontario
With this bulletin, the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) is issuing a revised version of a statutory accident benefit form that was issued along with 26 others as part of the implementation of Bill 59, the Automobile Insurance Rate Stability Act, 1996. These forms were attachments to OIC Bulletin No. A-10/96, dated October 23, 1996, issued by the Ontario Insurance Commission (OIC).
The form that has been revised is the "Designated Assessment Referral and Summary Report" form (OCF-11). This form is used for referrals to Designated Assessment Centres (DACs) for accidents occurring under both Bill 59 and the previous system under Bill 164.
Part 3 of the form has been changed to inquire as to whether the referral has been made to the DAC nearest to the claimant’s residence, and if not, the reason for not making the referral to the nearest DAC.
Part 4 of the form has been changed to capture the types of goods and service in dispute that a medical and rehabilitation DAC will assess.
Part 5 of the form has been amended to reflect more accurately the different provision under Bill 59 and Bill 164 for submitting those medical and rehabilitation goods and service in dispute for assessment.
This form has been modified and recommended by the Minister’s Committee on the DAC System.
Insurers that still have supplies of the existing form may continue to use them before acquiring copies of the revised form.
