ICBC Q&A

I would like to receive acupuncture treatment for the pain caused by a motor vehicle accident. Do I need the approval of the ICBC adjuster and doctors' referrals?

  

No. If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) covered by ICBC on or after April 1, 2019, you are automatically pre-authorized (regardless of fault) for up to 12 acupuncture sessions within 12 weeks of the date of the accident. If additional sessions are required, we can ask ICBC to extend the coverage. If you need more than 12 treatments, you can request ICBC to extend your treatment.

 

What treatment will I receive?

  

You will receive a combination of acupuncture, cupping or moxa therapy. If constipation starts or worsens after the accident, the prognosis is not good. In this case, several days of herbal medicine may be prescribed. There may be extra costs for herbal medicines for more than 3 days. 

 

Can you combine physiotherapy, chiropractic and massage therapy with acupuncture?

  

Yes, combining allegeable therapies can significantly benefit the recovery rate. However, receiving more than one session in one day is not recommended.
