ICBC Injury Claims

DesLauriers Chiropractic Group Inc. offers direct billing for ICBC injury claims.

Man after auto accidentMotor Vehicle Accidents are stressful events that can cause a lot of pain, discomfort, and re-aggravate previous injuries. We want to make sure you get back to your regular routines again and make it easier for you post-accident.

When you call to book your appointment, be sure to inform our office that it is related to a motor vehicle accident. You will be asked to provide us with your ICBC claim number and the accident date so we can verify your coverage prior to your appointment.

Your initial visit will be scheduled for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. Patient forms will be emailed to you in advance so you can complete them prior to your appointment. During your initial visit, your Chiropractor will assess your current condition, review the details of your Motor Vehicle Accident, take x-rays (if needed), and provide a treatment. Your Chiropractor will also provide you with a recommended treatment plan.

What am I covered for?

Regardless of fault, practice members injured in a Motor Vehicle Accident on or after April 1, 2019, are pre-authorized for 25 chiropractic treatments within the first 12 weeks after your accident date. You do not need a doctor referral to begin treatment.

Once you have reached 12 weeks or maxed out your approved treatments, your Chiropractor can submit an extension request for further approval treatments.

If your accident was more than 12 weeks prior, ICBC may require our office to submit a report detailing your injuries prior to approving coverage. We will contact ICBC on your behalf prior to your appointment to confirm coverage.

Pre-authorized treatments for Health Services (taken from the ICBC website)

ICBC customers are able to access the preauthorized number of treatment sessions within the first 12 weeks from the date of their crash without ICBC approval.
