How to Start Billing OHIP


What Info do I need to start billing OHIP


I am a physician new to Ontario hoping to utilize for my billing needs.

I recently registered and currently have a CPSO number but am awaiting my OHIP billing number.

Will I also need to register independently for MCEDT/ GoSecure before I can begin submitting my billings or is this something that you can assist with once I obtain my OHIP number?



You will require an MCEDT / GoSecure account to submit your billings. However, to obtain your MCEDT / GoSecure account, you will first need to obtain your billing number. Here is everything you need to start medical billing in Ontario.

If you have already obtained your billing number, you can then register for an MCEDT/ GoSecure account.

It takes up to 10 business days to get the MCEDT account and you must have this set up before we can transmit your claims to the Ministry of Health. However, you can enter your claims in our system before you have your MCEDT account but the claims will not be submitted until you've completed the MCEDT/ GoSecure designation process
