Car accidents are one of the most common causes of spine pain and spine related injuries. Injuries from a collision often take longer to treat than other types of injuries. Your chiropractic doctor has the skills to assess and treat motor vehicle related injuries such as whiplash, associated headaches, low back pain, thoracic pain and more.
If you have been in a car accident you most likely qualify for the ICBC Flat Fee Program. If ICBC accepts your claim, it will pay for the reasonable expenses you incur for necessary chiropractic treatment. This program is designed to remove any barriers that would prevent immediate access to care.
You do not need to seek pre-approval or require a note from your medical doctor in order to start the ICBC Flat Fee Program with a chiropractor. Simply visit your family chiropractor as soon as you feel symptoms and advise the receptionist that you were involved in a car accident prior to your first visit.
If you decide to participate in the Chiropractic Flat Fee program ICBC will pay a flat fee directly to your chiropractor and you will not be charged any additional fees. The program is a time-based treatment with a specific time frame however the number of visits per week will be based on individual treatment needs.
Prior to your first visit please obtain your ICBC claim number and adjustors name. On your first visit you will need to arrive about 20 minutes prior to your visit in order to fill out the appropriate forms for the flat fee program.
