FAQs


  • I think my facility was deactivated. Why? Can I be reactivated?

    Facilities may be end-dated (deactivated) if:

    1. You did not submit an OCF within three months of enrolling with HCAI (as of May 2017), or
    2. Your Facility does not have a valid, FSCO-issued Service Provider License and you haven’t submitted an OCF in one or more years.

    If you received a deactivation email because your Facility fits the criteria outlined above, you should follow the instructions to end-date your Facility. If you do not end-date your Facility within the assigned time period, HCAI will manually end-date your Facility on your behalf.

    If you treat an MVA patient and must submit an OCF in the future, you can enroll with HCAI again. HCAI cannot simply reactivate your account; you must enrol anew.

    Follow the steps on the How to Enrol page to complete a new enrolment.

  • I need help changing my Facility’s Authorizing Officer

    Visit the Authorizing Officer Information page to find detailed instructions on how to complete the following tasks:

    • Change the name of your Facility’s AO
    • Change the email address of your Facility’s AO
    • What to do if your AO leaves and no other user has the ability to update AO information

    Please note that any change to the Authorizing Officer’s name invalidates the contract between HCAI and your Facility. This means that your Facility will be temporarily deactivated until a new contract is printed, signed by the new Authorizing Officer, and submitted to Facility Support. You will see the option to print the contract appear on the Facility Management page. View the Authorizing Officer Information page for step-by-step instructions.

  • I need help with Service Provider Licensing

    Visit the Management and Administration > Service Provider Licensing page to find detailed information about the following:

    • What is FSCO’s Service Provider Licensing?
    • How do I apply for a Service Provider Licence?
    • How do I enter my FSCO Licence Number into my HCAI account?
    • Do I need to renew my Service Provider Licence?
    • How can I submit an invoice without a Service Provider Licence?
    • How can I submit an invoice if the service was provided before I was licenced?

    You can also visit FSCO’s comprehensive service provider licence FAQ.

  • I need help submitting invoices for direct payment by the Insurer

    In order to be paid directly by an Insurer, your Facility must have a valid FSCO Service Provider Licence at the time of the treatment/service and when the invoice is submitted via HCAI.

    For more information on invoicing, visit our OCF-21C or OCF-21B pages.

    For more information on Service Provider Licensing, visit our Service Provider Licensing page or FSCO’s Service Provider Licence FAQ.

  • How do I submit invoices if I do not have a Service Provider License?

    If your facility does not have a valid FSCO Service Provider Licence at the time of treatment/service and when the invoice is submitted via HCAI, you cannot be paid directly by the insurer.

    For facilities that do not have a licence, there is an additional process for completing an OCF-21:

    • In Part 4, ‘No’ must be selected for the question, “Is the payee the health care facility?”
    • Complete and submit the invoice in HCAI. Print the submitted invoice and provide it to the claimant.
    • Part 4 of the printed invoice will be watermarked with a message that the claimant must be paid directly.
    • The claimant submits the copy to their insurer to be paid.

    For more information, review our Service Provider Licensing page or step-by-step instructions on completing the OCF-21B or OCF-21C.

  • I need help enrolling with HCAI

    Our New to HCAI page outlines the steps for enrolling with HCAI. To help walk you through the process we also developed a handy Enrolment Checklist.

  • I need help retrieving my HCAI password

    If you forgot your HCAI password, use the Forgot Your Password link, located on the right-hand side of the HCAI login page. Enter your User Name and click on the “Reset Password” button to receive a password reset email.

    If your HCAI User Profile does not have an email address associated with it, your Facility Administrator can reset your password for you. For step-by-step instructions and more information, review our Password and User Name page.

    If you are the Authorizing Officer and you did not receive your password reset email, you will need to follow up with HCAI Facility Support to have your password manually reset. Complete the Contact form within "I still need help with HCAI" section outlining your Facility name, number, and the AO name and email address to have the AO’s password reset.
