Implications for Occupational Therapists
Occupational therapists working in the Auto Insurance system will be familiar with the role and regulatory guidance of FSCO.  FSRA assumes this role.

FSRA is actively reviewing all FSCO regulatory direction for the auto insurance system, including but not limited to forms, Guidelines and FAQs.  Until FSRA issues new regulatory direction, all existing regulatory direction remains in place.  OTs will note that links from the FSRA website to information on auto insurance continue to link to the FSCO website.
