The Ontario Insurance Adjusters Association (OIAA) is presenting a seminar in Toronto about the new Health Claims for Auto Insurance (HCAI) system.
The Apr. 11 seminar will include an overview of the HCAI system and its capabilities, the changes that can be expected at the adjuster level and what managers can do to prepare.
The seminar will take place between 3-5 p.m. at the Novotel Toronto Centre, located at 45 The Esplanade, Toronto.
An initiative of the Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC), HCAI will capture key information in order to create a database of medical rehabilitation claims in the Ontario auto insurance system.
The system will be rolled out across Ontario starting in the first quarter of 2007. Regulations require Ontario auto insurers and health professionals who do business with insurers to submit certain data through HCAI by Feb. 1, 2008.
Allison Brand, IBCs senior business advisor, will be giving a presentation at the OIAA seminar about the new system.
Brand has spent the past 12 years working within the insurance industry. Starting her career as an accident benefits road adjuster, she has also worked within the health care and investigative services field.
In addition, special guest speaker Allison Stuart, the director of the Emergency Management Unit, Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care will be speaking on the topic: Are we ready for the next Pandemic?”
