Acupuncture and ICBC Car Insurance

Car waiting at Traffic Light
The Province of British Columbia has recently released new regulations regarding changes to auto insurance coverage and compensation provided by ICBC.

These changes, which will take effect on April 1st, 2019, are an attempt to reduce legal costs while improving access to healthcare treatments and saving customers out of pocket expenses on their road to recovery.

Acupuncture is one of the treatment modalities which will be directly covered by ICBC and will include 12 pre-authorized visits within the first 12 weeks following a claimant’s motor vehicle accident, with additional acupuncture treatments being covered on a case by case basis.

More details are available on the ICBC website.
