All physicians billing under their solo (0000) billing number need to register for their Gosecure/ MCEDT account.
Gosecure: Physician portal from the Ministry to help you manage permissions of your claims with your billing software or billing agent (this is also known as the "designation" process).
MCEDT: Medical Claims Electronic Data Transfer - this is the system that allows billing software to upload/ download your claims. Permissions to this system is managed by the Gosecure portal by the physician.
When you registered for your OHIP Billing number, you should have obtained an invitation letter to register your Gosecure/MCEDT account. It contains two "Unique Identifiers" that'll you need to enter during this setup process.
Step 1: Navigate to the Gosecure portal and register as a "new user"
Step 2: Create your personal details; password; and personal verification questions
Step 3: Validate your account by receiving the email from Gosecure and clicking on the URL provided
Step 4: Login to Gosecure --> select "New User" --> enter your "Unique Identifiers" **don't forget this step!**
You are now done with the registration of your Gosecure/MCEDT account!.. the next step is to designate to MDBilling.ca (see below).
This is the process to give MDBilling.ca "permission" to upload/download your claims.
The best and easiest approach is to enter your Gosecure credentials within the MDBilling.ca secure portal. We can take care of the entire designation process and test that our systems is connected with Gosecure.
Navigate to the top right gear icon --> EDT
then navigate to Setup --> and follow the instructions.
Alternatively, you can manually designate to MDBilling.ca.
