As of April 1, 2019, the rates that ICBC pays to your health care provider have increased. Details of ICBC’s new fee schedule can be found in Schedule 3.1.
If you need further treatment in addition to the pre-authorized amount, you need a doctor’s note. Due to ICBC’s rate increase, you shouldn’t be paying any more user fees in the future. If you are being charged, you may want to discuss this with your health care provider.
Extended Health Benefits – If your motor vehicle accident occurred after May 17, 2018, you must submit your expenses to your health plan first. This includes coverage that you may have through your spouse, parent, or student health plan.
Disability benefits and EI sickness – If your motor vehicle accident occurred after May 17, 2018, and you are unable to work, you must use your disability plan and/or EI sickness.
If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident ICBC may reimburse you the cost of your treatment under Part VII. Please see the Part VII Table and take note of the date of your motor vehicle accident. Please note: there is no time limit placed on ICBC with respect to when you will receive reimbursement, but if your accident occurred on or after April 1, 2019 you must send your receipt to ICBC within 60 days.
