The Province of BC has released new regulations for therapies covered by ICBC, which will include acupuncture as a preferred modality. The updated regulation will be officially launched on April 1st, 2019, at this point ICBC will start covering fees for acupuncture.
The fees paid to Acupuncturists will be as follows, with adjustments made over time:
Initial intake and treatment: $105.
Follow-up per treatments: $88.
ICBC will cover the first 12 treatments (given in no more than 12 weeks), with more treatments being covered on a case by case basis.
Special thanks to Dr. Yan Bin Ma, Dr. Fei Che, Dr. John Yang, and Jason Tutt for their time and efforts in pushing forward the new regulation.
