||When does this change become effective?
||The change is effective March 1, 2002.
||How do I register banking information to be used exclusively for my malpractice reimbursement?
||Complete an application for Direct Bank Payment, attach
a void cheque for the account and forward to your local ministry
office. Specify on the form the account is to be used for malpractice
reimbursement payments only.
||Can I continue to use the bank account registered on my solo billing number for my malpractice reimbursement?
||Yes, we will continue to use the bank account registered under the solo billing number unless instructed otherwise.
||Does this change mean I can use different bank accounts
for my medical claims payments and for my malpractice reimbursement
||Can I have just my malpractice reimbursement paid by direct deposit and payment by cheque for claims payment?
||Yes. Specify on the application for direct Bank Payment the account is for malpractice reimbursements only.
||Can I register for direct bank deposit for my malpractice reimbursement even if I don’t have a MOHLTC billing number?
||Yes. A billing number is no longer a requirement for direct bank deposit for reimbursement payments.
||Are there any restrictions to what bank account I can use for my malpractice reimbursement?
||No, there are no restrictions provided the proper authorizations are received.
||Can I use the bank account registered on my group billing number?
||Yes, but it must be registered separately from your
group billing number. An application for Direct Bank Payment must be
completed indicating the account will be used for malpractice
||Why can I automatically use my solo billing account but not my group billing account?
||The ministry does not have payment agreements with
groups for reimbursements, only individual physicians. We must receive
specific instructions to deposit reimbursement payments to a third
||Will the group receive itemized reporting for malpractice reimbursement payments?
||No. The ministry will continue to report malpractice
reimbursement payments to individual physicians only. All reporting to a
third party is the responsibility of the physician
