|Is physiotherapy covered under BC Medical?|
|BC Medical hasn’t covered physiotherapy in a private clinic since 2002. If you have extended medical coverage, you can submit your receipts for reimbursement.
|Can you bill my extended health directly?|
|Most extended health plans do not allow direct billing.
|Do I need to have a doctor's referral to receive treatment?|
|If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident or have a work related injury, you will need a referral from a doctor. Some extended medical plans also require a referral to get a reimbursement.
|If I was hurt at work, am I entitled to receive any physiotherapy?|
|If your Worksafe BC claim has been allowed, they will cover 8 weeks of treatment to a maximum of 22 visits if necessary.
|If I was involved in a motor vehicle accident, am I entitled to receive physiotherapy?|
|If your ICBC claim is approved, they will cover 12 visits within 2 months from the accident. If you require more visits, or more time, a doctor's referral to request extension may be necessary.
