Registered Massage Therapy for ICBC Clients – 12 Sessions

Massage Therapy services are covered on ICBC open claims. Individuals injured in a car accident have access to pre-approved 12 Registered Massage Therapy sessions to support your recovery. 

ICBC partly covers the 45-minute (or longer) registered massage therapy sessions. An additional user fee applies and must be paid by the patient. You may be able to claim the additional costs under your Extended Health provider. This additional cost cannot be done through direct billing; you will need to submit your receipts and request reimbursement directly from your Extended Health provider.
