Education and Prevention Committee
The Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) have jointly established the Education and Prevention Committee (EPC). Since 2003, the Education and Prevention Committee has developed education for physicians about submitting OHIP claims for payment for the insured service provided.
OHIP Resources for Physicians webpage
The Resources for Physicians webpage includes information about OHIP billing policies and procedures (such as applying for a billing number), educational modules to help physicians understand the Schedule of Benefits for Physician Services as well as specific fee codes listed in the Schedule. This webpage provides links to additional references including INFOBulletins and now, EPC Billing Briefs.
EPC Billing Briefs
The newly launched EPC Billing Briefs focus on specific billing issues. Each brief will identify the areas of practice it covers and may provide relevant clinical examples to illustrate key points. Notice of new EPC Billing Briefs will be included in OHIP Announcements.
Your feedback is welcome and appreciated. To provide feedback on EPC Billing Briefs, or to suggest topics for future EPC Billing Briefs, send an email to the attention of the joint Ministry of Health and OMA Education and Prevention Committee.
