As of December 1, 2014, service providers who submit OCF-21 forms through Health Claims for Auto Insurance (HCAI) must be licensed with the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) to invoice and receive direct payment from automobile insurers for specific "listed expenses" in connection with statutory accident benefits.
The Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) is now accepting service provider licence applications. Visit FSCO’s website to apply for your business’ licence.
To ensure a licensing decision by November 30, 2014, your business must apply for a service provider licence before August 31, 2014.
Service providers that do not submit licence applications prior to August 31, 2014, may not receive licensing decisions prior to November 30, 2014.
