NOTICE FROM WCB - MARCH 7TH, 2013
Dear Care providers:
For some time now, WCB staff has taken time from their assigned duties to provide claim numbers to care providers who telephone asking for this information.
We have now reached the point where these requests are outstripping our ability to provide the information and are negatively affecting our ability to provide services to injured workers and employers.
We must cease providing this service but we want to minimize the impact on your business.
Some information which we think would be useful to you includes:
1. There is a common misconception that the care provider requires a WCB claim number to invoice or send reports to WCB in paper or on-line format. THIS IS NOT ACCURATE INFORMATION.
As long as you provide as much identifying information as possible on the form, WCB should have no difficulty linking your report/invoice to the correct worker, even if he or she has a common name or if the injured worker has more than one injury claim registered with the WCB. Be aware that SIN, PHN and AREA OF INJURY are important and will eliminate most errors/problems.
2. Most injured workers know their claim number and can provide it to you as the number is included in correspondence they receive from the WCB
3. Referrals from WCB Health Services will always include a claim number
4. Where a payment for care provider services has been made to you, the voucher will show the worker's claim number.
5. Physicians, Physical Therapists, and Chiropractors have an alternate payer or a negative response approval process. This allows these providers to begin treatment the day the injured worker arrives at the clinic with the Initial Report form notifying the WCB that treatment has started. Again, a claim number is not necessary for submission of these reports.
If you have questions or concerns about the above information, please call me at 306-537=-6047 so that I can answer any questions that you have about process in our office or yours.
Thanking all of you for your services to WCB clients,
WCB Health Care Services
