Insurance Claims at Back in Motion Health in the Lower Mainland

How does MSP coverage work?

Clients eligible for MSP are allowed up to 10 visits annually to be shared as needed between massage and physiotherapy. MSP advises clinics to verify coverage on each date to ensure eligibility. Clients with MSP coverage pay a user fee of $25 for each eligible appointment. When MSP coverage has been exhausted, Client is expected to cover and pay for the applicable service private rate.

Note: Is recommended that Clients keep track of their visits if they are also using MSP coverage elsewhere. There is an annual limit of 10 shared visits. 

How does ICBC coverage work?

In most cases, Clients are pre-approved for Kinesiology/Active Rehabilitation, Massage Therapy, Physiotherapy, Acupuncture and Psychological/Counselling services for their active claim (within 3 months from the date of the accident). After this period, a GP note is required. If your funding is approved, Back in Motion Health will directly bill your pre-approved costs to ICBC.

Please note that for RMT subsequent appointments, ICBC partly covers the 45-minute (or longer) sessions. An additional user fee applies and must be paid by the client.

If clients opts for longer appointments (from the ones approved by ICBC), the additional cost is charged to the client. This additional cost may be covered by your Extended Health Plan (dependent on your individual coverage), but it cannot be submitted as direct billing. Legacies provides a medical receipt to be used on request for reimbursement.

How does WCB coverage work?

  • Massage Therapy: Currently, Back in Motion Registered Massage Therapists do not direct bill to WCB. Clients may pay for the appointment at a private rate, and request for reimbursement with the receipt provided. 
  • Physiotherapy: Clients need to provide a claim number, PHN and date of injury when booking a Physiotherapy appointment. Back in Motion staff will be able to check if the claim is approved on the WCB’s website. Clients with an approved claim have 60 days from the date of injury to come in for an assessment/treatment, and treatments will be billed directly to WCB. If 60-days timeframe has passed, Clients needs to contact WCB for approval, before booking an appointment.
