If you are a service provider that submits OCF-21 forms through Health Claims for Auto Insurance (HCAI), you must be licensed by FSRA in order to invoice and receive payment directly from auto insurers for listed expenses. 

How licences are issued

Licenses for service providers are issued at the business or legal entity level (e.g., sole proprietorship, corporation, partnership). This means only one licence is needed for all facilities, branches or locations operated by a service provider.
