    How Does a Motor Vehicle Accident Claim Work?

    If you’ve been in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) and need to make a claim, here’s what should happen first:

    • A claim needs to be made to your motor vehicle insurer. Call your insurance company to file a claim and inform them that you have sustained bodily injuries from the accident as well.
    • Your insurance company will assign an adjuster to you for your health claim. This will be a different person than your vehicle damage adjuster. If you haven’t done this yet, don’t worry. You have up to 2 years to make a health claim due to injuries sustained from a motor vehicle accident.
    • Once an adjuster has been assigned to you, they’ll provide you with a package of forms (if they don’t, we can provide you with the required documents). The main form that you need to start your health claim process is an Application for Accident Benefits (OCF-1) form. You should fill out this form and bring it with you to your first initial assessment and treatment.
    • If you can’t fill it out yourself, just let us know ahead of time and we’ll reserve adequate time before your initial assessment to help you fill it out. We can also send this form to your insurer on your behalf.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. Minor injury guideline: $3,500 limit (including $400 for rehabilitation products)
    2. Non-catastrophic: $50,000 limit (including rehabilitation products)
    3. Catastrophic impairments: $1,000,000 limit (including rehabilitation products)

    Please note, these are limits and do not indicate that funding is automatically approved. Treatment plans always require approval for coverage by the insurer.

    If you’ve been in an accident, you’re automatically pre-approved for $2,200 of medical rehabilitation coverage. Once that’s exceeded, treatment plans need to be submitted and approved by your insurer.

    Also, if you have private health care coverage, the guidelines require you to exhaust them first before your motor vehicle insurer begins coverage. If you’re only covered up to a certain percentage by your private health insurer, your motor vehicle insurer will cover the remaining percentage until exhausted, in which case they will then begin to cover the full price of the treatments.
