At Scotia Bank, the process is very similar.
- In Business Banking, log on.
- Go to Payments and select Manage Payees.
- In the list of Available Payees, choose Shekinah Medical
- At the bottom, in the space for Account Number, type your Shekinah Medical file number, a six digit code like AA123B, where the first 2 and and last digits are alphabetc, while the 3rd, 4th and 5th digits are numeric (0-9).
This sets up the account. When you need to pay, navigate to Create Bill Payment, select the account from which you will pay, and in Select Payee, choose Shekinah Medical from the list and proceed.
Note that unlike FirstCaribbean International, there's no field at Scotiabank for your name, so do be VERY
careful to enter your filenumber correctly. An incorrect entry may redirect your payment to someone else - or no-one!!
Generally, we will contact you to confirm these payments. For insurance companies, credit unions and other such entities making payments on behalf of patients, we would have liked to have a field to identify you but this could not be arranged. It would therefore be a good idea to give the office a call either before or after making a payment on behalf of a patient so we would know to whom to address the receipt.
