This page provides instructions for obtaining reimbursement or payment from OMSA. Note that while payment requests are collected and directed by the OMSA Finance Portfolio, the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) handles all payments. As a result, you may experience some delays in receipt of your payment due to fluctuations in the volume of requests received by the OMA. We will do our best to ensure that everyone is paid in a timely manner.
Please read and understand this page in its entirety before submitting a reimbursement request. All reimbursement requests MUST be submitted to OMSA Finance through the Google Form linked HERE. Documents submitted via email will NOT be accepted. Note that you will not receive confirmation that your reimbursement is being processed. You will receive payment via EFT direct deposit within 4-6 weeks. Please contact the OMSA VP Finance (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have not received your transfer within a month of submission.
