Physiotherapy Treatments for ICBC Car Accidents Explained
Over the last year, ICBC has made changes making it easier to expedite recovery. For those involved with a motor vehicle accident, it's possible to start treatment once a claim is approved. Just provide the claim number, adjustor's name, and phone number when booking your appointment. No doctor's referral is needed.
With direct billing to ICBC, physiotherapy treatments are typically covered for at least the first 12 weeks after an accident. This includes up to 25 Physiotherapy Treatments, 25 Chiropractic treatments, and 12 Massage Therapy (RMT) treatments.
For example, the first step at Lift Performance and Rehabilitation Clinic in Vancouver is to perform a head to toe assessment to determine the location, type, and severity of the injuries sustained after the accident. Objective measurements are taken to track the speed and progress of recovery. A detailed report will be provided to ICBC and others involved in the treatment.
