If you’ve billed any claims through the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board payment program during February and March 2021, then you can expect a slight increase on those claims. The increase comes from an agreement that was made through the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board and the ministry of health (OHIP), in which they agreed that Ontario physicians needed compensation increases related to the 2019 Kaplan Board of Arbitration Award (Award).

This means that any claims you may have billed through the WSIB program will be adjusted to reflect the prices outlined in Section 21(a) of the Binding Arbitration Framework in accordance with the award.

Retroactive Increases to WSIB Payments


For any claims you’ve billed through WSIB during the mentioned periods below, you’ll receive the dollar amount specific to that year’s increase. Year 1 and year 2 claims were paid on February’s remittance report while year 3 claims were paid on your March remittance report.
