Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
"HBOT is widely recognized to treat a variety of conditions"
While Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) gains notoriety in Canada and becomes more of a "main-stream" modality for the treatment of various conditions, in our experience, acceptance of most private health insurance claims and treatment plans (OCF-18) involving HBOT are increasing.*
Please be aware that Ontario HBOT will only be responsible to fill out the following sections of the OCF-18:
All other sections and form fields must be completed by the prospective patient, PRIOR to submission to the patient care team.
*Ontario HBOT does not guarantee acceptance of any OCF-18 treatment plans submitted to a private insurance company.

Pre-Qualification call is conducted with various members of the patient care team to ensure the prospective patient is able to safely treat in a hyperbaric chamber.
Partially filled forms and other supporting documents are sent to the patient care team for review and completion.
OCF-18 and any other related forms are completed, signed, and sent through HCAI for Insurance Company approval.
Ontario HBOT is registered with HCAI (Health Claims for Auto Insurance)
HCAI allows our facility to directly submit all related treatment plans directly to your insurance company. Individuals that have been deemed catastrophic or have a lump sum allotted for therapies related to a motor vehicle accident recovery, may treat at Ontario HBOT.
Please fax all related documents including the OFC-3 Disability Certificate and OCF-18 Treatment plan (personal questions filled out only).
Ontario HBOT will work with your personal injury lawyer and any other members of your rehabilitation team in order to ensure a seamless process during this stressful time.

In most private pay-for-service cases, extensive medical records are not required beyond the information gathered via our Patient Intake Form.
