Under this program, ICBC pays the chiropractor directly so you don’t have to pay out of your pocket and get reimbursed later. All you need to do is provide your claim number to your chiropractor so they can conﬁrm that you’re covered. After that, all chiropractic fees are covered and you’re pre-approved for as many visits as needed.
ICBC will pay for your necessary chiropractic treatments in one of two ways:
1) New service delivery and compensation plan: ICBC will pay a lump sum directly to your chiropractor. You will not be charged any additional ofﬁce visit fees, regardless of the duration or number of necessary treatments while participating in the program. Your adjuster does not need to approve ongoing treatments.
2) Current fee-for-service plan: ICBC will pay $22.27 for your ﬁ rst chiropractic visit and $17.35 for subsequent treatments. You’ll be responsible. Your adjuster needs to approve ongoing treatments.
This option is available if your claim occurred on or after June 1, 2009. It’s your choice to use the new option or the current fee for service payment plan.
Rehabilitative exercise during the treatment is important in helping your body reconnect mind to muscle and repattern the musculature around the injury. While we try to spend most of the treatment time hands on, we expect the patient to comply with exercises post treatment.
If it is a chronic injury that you are dealing with, imagine that all your daily activities (driving, sitting at desk, sleeping on one side) have led you to this state of physical pain. Therefore you must take on a daily change to break the cycle of dysfunction that your body gets into.
Whether it is 2-4 minutes of stretching and exercise a day or getting up for a walk around the office every hour. It is important to incorporate rehabilitation exercises into your daily schedule.
