Insurance Referral Form

  • For Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) referrals:  once we receive the referral, one of our health professionals will contact the patient to complete a screening and gather the information to complete the OCF-18 (application for treatment and assessment).  We will send the OCF-18 to the patient for their review and signature, and then submit to the insurance company for their approval.  Once funding is secured, we will contact the referring agency and/or lawyer for the appropriate medical documentation, and an assessment will be scheduled.
