Invoicing for training and education services

Training and education service providers can invoice us by mail or fax. The sponsorship or authorization letter you receive from us outlines specific invoicing requirements. Following these instructions will help us pay you sooner.

Before delivering services, be sure you have our approval. We'll send it to you in a tuition sponsorship letter or a vendor invoice authorization letter. These documents include the client's details, a listing of approved courses, 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 filled in before you submit your 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:
