New and Revised Accident Benefit Claims Forms

 

Bulletin

No. A- 03/06
– Auto
Property & Casualty
[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 14 new or revised forms for Statutory Accident Benefit Claims. The forms reflect changes to the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS) to eliminate the Designated Assessment Centre (DAC) system which becomes effective on March 1, 2006. The forms also include revisions to consent language, elimination of same-sex partner references and other housekeeping changes.

 

Two existing accident benefit claims forms are being dropped and consolidated into other claims forms. In addition, two claims forms that relate specifically to DAC assessments will also be phased out following the run-off of ongoing DAC assessments.

 

Form 1, Assessment of Attendant Care Needs, is no longer printed as part of the SABS. A revised version of this form with updated hourly rates will be used for accidents on or after March 1, 2006. The revised form is attached and has been posted on FSCO’s website.

 

Changes to these forms have been made in consultation with the insurance industry, health care professionals, and legal representatives.

 

For your convenience, an attached chart sets out a list of revised, new and eliminated claims forms.

 


How to Obtain the New/Revised Forms

 

Copies of the new and revised forms are attached for your information. The forms are also available on FSCO’s website at: www.fsco.gov.on.ca.
