EXTENDED HEALTH CARE EXPENSES EXPLAINED

– SUN LIFE OR ANOTHER CARRIER

Q. How do I submit my extended health care expenses to OMA-OPIP and UWO HCSA through Sun Life?
Both the UWO HCSA and OMA-OPIP benefit plan policy year runs from January 1st to December 31st.  All extended health care claims must be submitted to Sun Life by the end of March in the following year for previous year's expenses.


Q. What claim form do I use to submit my expenses?
All extended health care expenses are submitted to Sun Life using a paper claim form.  All claim forms are available on the department website. 
 If you elected the HCSA with UWO, Sun Life will coordinate your expenses to be paid through the OMA-OPIP plan (Policy No. 50131) first and any unpaid expenses will be reimbursed through the UWO HCSA (Policy No. 150033).  The form is labeled UWO-OMA/OPIP claim form.
If you did not elect the UWO HCSA use the form labeled OMA-OPIP claim form.


Q. How do I submit a claim if I have another insurance plan through my spouse or another carrier?
All extended health care expenses should be submitted to the OMA-OPIP plan with Sun Life first to be applied to the deductible.  The exception is Vision Care as this is not a covered expense under the OMA-OPIP plan; however, it is eligible under the UWO HCSA if you wish to claim under this plan. (see below)


Any unpaid portion of your extended health care expenses may be eligible under another insurance plan you may have.  Using the “claims statement” or “explanation of benefits” provided by Sun Life, you can submit this document, along with the other insurance carrier claim form for reimbursement for the amount not paid by Sun Life.  


Q. Can I claim vision care expenses under the UWO HCSA or OMA-OPIP plan?
The OMA-OPIP plan does not provide vision care coverage.  You can claim your vision care expenses under the Sun Life UWO HCSA (Policy No. 150033) if funds are available.

Q. How can I contact Sun Life with any questions I may have about the OMA-OPIP plan or UWO HCSA?

The OMP-OPIP number is 1-866-527-9260 or online contact info@opip.ca
