Invoicing for goods

If we approve you to supply goods to an injured worker, you can invoice us by mail or fax. The vendor invoice authorization letter you receive from us outlines specific invoicing requirements. Following these requirements will help us pay you sooner.

Before providing goods to the client, be sure you have our approval. We'll send it to you in a vendor invoice authorization letter. This letter gives the client’s details, a listing of the items and dollar amounts approved, and contact information for the vocational rehabilitation consultant who made the referral.

We encourage you to use our  Vocational Rehabilitation Services External Provider Invoice — Generic Form 65D5. All of its mandatory fields are marked with an asterisk. Please double-check that these fields are all filled in before you submit the invoice.

If you choose to use your own form, please clearly label the information. For example, the client's eight-digit claim number must be preceded with the label "Claim number," so that we know what it is.

To protect the privacy of clients, please submit a separate invoice for each client.

Be sure to include the following information on your invoices:
