Postal Strike - MPI and WCB Plan

WCB INFO


WCB’s correspondence with healthcare providers, including the delivery of payment cheques, will be transported by medical courier where possible.  For those healthcare providers who do not deal with Medical Carriers Ltd., cheques will be available for pick-up at the Workers Compensation Board’s main office at 333 Broadway between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m beginning Wednesday, June 1, 2011.  There will be extended hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays until 7:00 p.m.   Any remaining cheques will be mailed out following the resolution of Canada Post's labour negotiations.  Healthcare providers outside of Winnipeg will be able to pick up their cheques at one of the government offices listed on the attached document (Appendix A) as of Thursday, June 2, 2011.  Two pieces of identification, one of which must be photo ID (e.g. driver’s license, passport), will be required.  A note authorizing cheque pick-up on company letterhead, where applicable, would also be appreciated.


We also encourage all healthcare providers to enrol for Direct Deposit of their cheque to their bank accounts. To do so, simply fill out a Healthcare Provider Direct Deposit Form (available on our website www.wcb.mb.ca) and fax it to 954-4999 or 1-877-872-3804 (toll-free). 


MPI INFO


Vendor cheques will be sorted by postal code and distributed to the Service Centre or Claim Centre location relevant to the business postal code for pick-up. Click here to determine your postal code-related, pick-up Centre location. (Link will be activated shortly)


The company representative picking up your cheque at the Service Centre or Claim Centre location will need to show identification – either one piece of government-issued photo ID or two pieces of government-issued, non-photo ID – and have written authorization on company letterhead designating them by name as the person authorized to receive the payment.


A third party may pick up the cheque provided they have written authorization on company letterhead designating them by name as the person authorized to receive the payment. The designate must also have personal identification as described above.


Purchase orders will be faxed or e-mailed. Non-urgent mail will be held until Canada Post resumes normal delivery.
