The WSIB’s approach towards compliance is to educate, communicate, assist and, only as a last resort, use enforcement.
We want to ensure that all suppliers are:
- billing for services and goods that were actually provided
- billing for medically necessary services only
- submitting accurate and up to date statements
If you suspect that anyone involved in a WSIB case (patient, employer, supplier or another health care practitioner) is not dealing honestly with us, you can use our toll-free action line at 1-888-SI-LEADS (1-888-745-3237), Monday to Friday, 730am to 5pm, or email us at email@example.com anytime to report your suspicions anonymously.
You are not required to provide your name and we do not capture email addresses and will take every reasonable effort to protect your personal identity.
Convictions under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act or under the Criminal Code of Canada will bring hefty fines and possible jail time. The WSIB will notify the appropriate regulatory body and it could affect your licence to practice.
If you want to get involved in preventing fraud in our health care environment, the Canadian Health Care Anti-Fraud Association acts on behalf of public and private sector healthcare organizations.
