WORKSAFE BC (WSBC OR FORMERLY WCB)
If your injury was sustained in the line of work it is vital that this is reported to your line manager ASAP so that they may complete and submit the necessary paper work to WSBC. Once WSBC have received this they will issue you with a claim number. This claim number will entitle you to a physiotherapy assessment but does not guarantee that your claim will be approved.
ICBC (INSURANCE CORPORATION OF BRITISH COLUMBIA)
ICBC provide coverage for physiotherapy services. If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident and have suffered an injury it is important that you have initiated a claim for this with ICBC and have seen your doctor first.
School-age children in the At-Home Program are also funded for 24 physiotherapy treatments every six months.
EXTENDED HEALTH BENEFITS
About two-thirds of BC adults have extended health benefits through a group insurance plan. These plans tend to cover a varying percentage of the cost of treatment, or the whole amount with an annual ceiling amount. It is important to note that most extended health plans do not allow us to direct bill. The appointment must be paid for by yourself upfront, a receipt will be provided which allow you to claim back and be reimbursed for the appointment.
Although it is not necessary to have a physician’s referral to see a physiotherapist, it is important to note that some extended health insurance plans require a physician’s referral in order to reimburse you for claims.
