2. Learn about Medical Form Part B

Make sure to read Step 1 before reading this Step.

Medical Form Part B has 2 sections:

  • Health Status Report
  • Activities of Daily Living Index

Health Status Report

This must be filled out by one of the following “approved health professionals”:

  • a family doctor or a specialist
  • a psychologist or a psychological associate
  • an optometrist
  • a registered nurse or a nurse practitioner

In the Health Status Report, your health professional lists any medical conditions you have that are not listed in Medical Form Part A.

The health professional must say whether a medical condition is likely to:

  • improve
  • stay the same
  • get worse

Or, they can say that they don’t know.

And they must give information about:

  • how a medical condition affects you, for example, how it limits your activities or stops you from doing certain things
  • how long they expect the condition to affect you
  • whether you’re affected by it all the time or some times

Activities of Daily Living Index

This must be filled out by one of the following “approved health professionals”:

  • a family doctor or a specialist
  • a psychologist or a psychological associate
  • an optometrist
  • an audiologist or a speech language pathologist
  • an occupational therapist or a physiotherapist
  • a chiropractor
  • a social worker
  • a registered nurse or a nurse practitioner

In the Activities of Daily Living Index, your health professional describes how much your health problems limit your ability to:

  • work
  • look after yourself
  • take part in activities at home and in the community

The Activities of Daily Living Index does not have to be filled out by the same health professional who fills out the Health Status Report.

For example, your family doctor may be the best person to fill out the Health Status Report. And your occupational therapist may be the best person to fill out the Activities of Daily Living Index.
