TIPS ON COMPLETING THE OCF-18 TREATMENT PLAN (ONTARIO)
In general, the OCF-18 is a form submitted to your insurance company that describes the cause and nature of the injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident. This document is critical in attaining your owed medical and rehabilitation benefit.
Your treatment requested in the OCF-18 will be covered in a fair and timely manner provided that the submitted treatment plan is medically supported, necessary and reasonable. Therefore, if you want to get your treatment paid for, then you must get the OCF-18 Treatment Plan completed and submitted to the insurer.
YOURS RESPONSIBILITIES FOR THE OCF-18
You must complete Part 1 which should be very straightforward for you. This section all you need to do is fill out your date of birth, gender, telephone number, name, and address.
In Part 2, you need to fill out the name of the insurance company, the name of the adjuster, and the name of the policy holder on the claim. This information should easily be found on the correspondence from your insurance company addressed to you. After this, you can skip to Part 10 where your printed name, signature, and date are required.
The rest of the OCF-18 Treatment plan is to be completed by your health care provider. Their job is to describe the nature and scope of their practice, the anticipated treatment, your injuries and expectations from treatment, as well as the cost and duration of the proposed treatment.
