Frequently Asked Questions

General

What type of doctor can use Agent+?
Currently any physician who practices medicine in Ontario and bills through OHIP can create and submit claims with Agent+. The app is optimized for specialists who operate in hospital environments. Agent+ currently supports most specialties, and is optimized for many specialties. Please see the full list here
Is Agent+ secure?
Agent+ was built with information privacy in mind, focusing on PHIPAA compliance and data security. This is accomplished via several factors.

Authentication: Agent+ creates a unique ID for every installed version of the app, and requires a PIN for access to the app and associated patient information.

Audit Controls: We maintain a log of who accesses your data, and when they access it.

Encryption: We ensure that all Protected Health Information is kept private and secure, provided by IDENTOS 256 AES Encryption built into the app. This encryption ensures that only you can access your PHI, and that all data stored on your device is protected from external threat.

What is a CPSO number vs an OHIP Billing number?
A CPSO number is assigned to each doctor, which they provide to a pharmacist when prescribing medication. This number can be found on the CPSO website. An OHIP Billing number (aka OHIP Provider Number) is assigned to a doctor by the Ministry of Health, and is used to identify them when billing or referring patients. A billing number can be found by looking at old medical reports, asking the on-staff unit clerk, or speaking to the administrator of the hospital. When adding a referring physician to your app, you need the billing number, not the CPSO number.
When do I get paid?

MOH deposits your cheque, with the amount specified on your Remittance Advice (RA), in your account between the 12th-15th of the month.  As specified on the RA, the claims that you are being paid for are claims submitted by the prior month’s MOH cut off date. If you have not received payment, but filled out the direct deposit form, call MOH to confirm that they have the correct deposit details at 1(800) 262-6524.
