If you’ve been in a car accident and need physiotherapy and/or massage therapy, we are here for you. A few things to know about ICBC coverage since the new changes as of April 01, 2019
Positive Aspects of the ICBC Physiotherapy Surrey Care-Based Model
You may be aware that ICBC Physiotherapy in Surrey just announced a significant shift to the system, moving from a fee-for-service model to a care-based one, with the goal of rescuing them from the financial hole they have dug for themselves over the years.
More crucially, BC residents wounded in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) will now have wider access to alternative treatment, especially physiotherapy. We've previously gone over the specifics of the new ICBC Physiotherapy Surrey care-based approach, which you can read about here. Instead, we'll quickly and practically examine the direct advantages of physiotherapy for you.
1. Spending More Time in Treatment
ICBC's effective restriction on ambulance chaser involvement in MVA injury claims means that affected parties won't have to wait as long to get compensation to pay for alternative treatments like physiotherapy and chiropractic care. This means you'll spend less time in court and more time getting treated for your injuries at a clinic.
2. Lower Personal Cost For ICBC Rehab:
As previously mentioned, aggrieved parties may have needed to spend years in court to obtain reimbursement for physiotherapy treatment prior to this reform. Those who couldn't wait because of their agony, discomfort, or malfunction had to pay cash, which drained their bank accounts to the brim. However, the new model eliminates the waiting period and decreases your out-of-pocket costs for ICBC Physiotherapy Surrey Cloverdalerehab because approved physiotherapy fees will be paid immediately.Even better, ICBC's new Improved Medical insurance will offer MVA victims 24-times the amount of care and benefits than what is presently offered, up to a maximum of at least $7.5 million, and for as long as it is required.
3. Lower Health Insurance Premiums:
ICBC will save a significant amount of money by eliminating the exaggerated expenses of fighting attorneys and their various businesses. The amount? $1.5 billion specifically! ICBC Surrey Physiotherapy is distributing its cost savings by lowering rates. You may further demonstrate your commitment to your health and wellbeing by allocating that cost savings (which amounts to around $400 a year) to your health and wellness in addition to using the new care model to obtain alternative and more effective kinds of treatment.
4. Receive Injury Rehabilitation for as Long as Necessary:
The goal of the new care-based model is to give you, a resident of British Columbia, the rehabilitation care you require for as long as it takes, allowing you to resume and fully enjoy your everyday life. There won't be a time limit or a pressure to get in as many sessions as you can before a specific day on the calendar. You will continue to undergo therapy as long as your injuries' incapacitating symptoms persist.
5. Separates Full Service Physiotherapy Therapy at Rest
It's possible that some occupational therapists have taken to the media to protest the new model, but that's only because they might not have an ICBC-registered chiropractor on staff who is authorised to oversee treatment for such claims. While the others are silent, physiotherapy clinics that do have an on-site ICBC-registered chiropractor are distinguishing themselves from the competition. You now have yet another crucial metric to evaluate if a physical therapy facility can actually be described as "full service."
