Will ICBC pay for rehabilitation benefits?

ICBC pays for some expenses for medical treatments, rehabilitation and prescriptions under its Part 7 Benefits. There are limitations under these benefits. ICBC does not cover ‘user fees’ for medical treatments, they typically have to pre-approve treatments and only pay specific, limited amounts for chiropractors, massage therapists, psychologists, and physiotherapists. If you have an extended healthcare policy, ICBC does not compensate you for covered therapies until the benefits you receive under your extended healthcare policy are exhausted. In total, rehabilitation benefits for a motor vehicle accident involving a vehicle insured in BC are generally limited to $150,000. There are some exceptions to this, and it is worth speaking to an experienced ICBC personal injury lawyer at Spraggs & Co. to understand what is relevant to your circumstances or to someone who is close to you.
