ICBC's Basic insurance is the mandatory coverage you need to operate a vehicle in BC. It helps ensure that all British Columbians using our roads are protected with an adequate level of coverage.

ICBC Has pre-set approved fee contributions for use toward therapy. For RMT you will be approved for a ONE TIME $120 + tax and $90 + tax there after to a max of 12 appointments total. 

After your pre-approved 12 appointments (must be attended within 12 weeks from the initial date of accident) you can apply for an extension. Your therapist will complete a new updated treatment plan along with some other documentation for your adjustor and will submit the documents on your behalf. If you have been approved, your adjustor will update your portal profile automatically and treatments can continue. Typically is can take on average 10-14 days for approval.
