Eligibility, Referrals and Intake

Anyone can contact our office to complete a referral - yourself or someone on your behalf. A doctor’s referral is not required although BICR may need information from your doctor. This will be further discussed by the Intake Coordinator and we will ask to review the medical records from your doctor.

Cost

Our services are funded by the Ministry of Health Long Term Care Division, unless you have available funds from a third party (e.g. auto insurance, WSIB). If funds are available from a third party, we will contact them regarding your needs.

Admission will be deemed to have occurred when an external candidate begins to receive any component of service from BICR.

BICR recognizes that none of its existing supports are long term in nature when medical, physical, or specialized care needs of the individual surpass the agency’s scope of services.

Application

The Intake Coordinator will send you written material concerning our programs and services and will work with you to determine whether BICR’s services are suitable to meet your needs.

Possible Waitlist

There are times when, due to large number of applications, a waiting list exists. It is important to contact BICR early in an individual's rehabilitation to initiate the application process.

When there is a waiting period for services, the Intake Coordinator will refer the individual to Case Coordination Services.
