Understanding Your ICBC Coverage for RMT
ICBC has made changes on April 1st, 2019 which means that if you’ve got into an MVA after that date you are entitled to preapproved treatments which include massage therapy. This also means that there’s no need for a doctor’s referral but the massage therapy session must be done within the first 12 weeks after the accident.
If you have recently been involved in a motor vehicle collision and have an active ICBC claim number, you are given 12 preapproved massage therapy sessions. This is in line with their aim of providing a customer-centric culture and giving the best care that you deserve.
At Evergreen Rehab and Wellness, we accept ICBC patients approved for massage therapy treatments.
