Want to upload a physicians written order?

Once you receive a physicians written order, you can upload it to your account so it’s there when you’re ready to submit your claim. In most cases, your uploaded physician’s written order will update almost immediately, (while a content to disclose and power of attorney will take approximately two business days to update.)

When submitting your physician’s written order, you must choose the service that your written order is for. Some of these services include

• acupuncture;
• massage;
• physiotherapy;
• psychology;
• chiropractor;
• speech therapy;
• ear molds;
• hearing aid accessories;
• hearing aid batteries, chargers, or testers;
• hearing aid repairs and adjustments; and
• hearing aid purchases.

If your physician’s written order does not fall into one of these 11 categories, choose “other” and then upload the written order.

If you are submitting a physician’s written order for a previously rejected claim that was submitted by you (and not your provider), the claim will automatically be reprocessed—you don’t need to resubmit your claim.

Document upload is not for receipts

Please don’t use the document upload feature to send in receipts for a new claim or a previously submitted claim—this may result in your claim not being processed.
