Expedited Medical Imaging Services

When people require medical imaging due to an injury at work, we may refer them to our network of Expedited Medical Imaging Service (EMIS) providers. This network is made up of providers who have long-term contracts with us. These contracts come up for bidding periodically.

Overview of services

Our EMIS providers run clinics offering a combination of the following procedures:

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with or without contrast, including MRI arthrogram
  • Computerized tomography scan with or without contrast
  • Ultrasound
  • Image-guided injections

Becoming a provider

Our long-term Expedited Medical Imaging Services contracts come up for bidding every few years. To become a provider, you need to apply for a contract when the bidding process begins.

We post notifications on Bid Opportunities when contracts are up for bidding. All the information you need, including how to submit your bid, will be available in the posted documents.

Through Bid Opportunities, you can also sign up for automatic notifications whenever one of these bid opportunities is posted.

Submitting reports and invoices

All the information you need on completing our required paperwork is available in the contract documents you sign with us.

  • Paperless invoicing for providers coming soon

    In the coming months, we will be introducing a new online portal for health care providers who currently submit paper invoices by fax or mail. The new portal is designed to make submitting invoices more convenient and efficient, and is part of our ongoing work to improve our online services to health care providers.
