Extended Medical

 Medical Plans

Extended Medical:  Total Rejuvenation is now offering direct billing to Pacific Blue Cross, Green Shield Canada, and SSQ Financial.  For all other extended Medical plans, we will provide you with a receipt to present to your extended medical plan administrator for reimbursement.            A physician referral may be required.

Please note, if you currently have an open WCB or ICBC claim, we are unable to direct bill to your plan.

MSP:  For Premium Assistance patients, coverage includes 10 treatments per calendar year combined with chiropractic, physiotherapy, acupuncture, naturopathy and non-surgical podiatry.  Treatment fees are to be paid by the patient at the time of the appointment, and reimbursed through MSP.   MD referrals are not needed for Premium Assistance patients.

RCMP:   Each person has $4800 to spend in total, per calendar year, for all of their supplementary health benefits including Chiropractic, Physiotherapy, Massage Therapy and Acupuncture. This value does not include GST.   A physician referral is required.

DVA:  Veteran’s require a medical referral for Massage Therapy.  The maximum coverage per year is $800. An increase can be applied for.

With coverage, veteran’s may receive a 50 minute treatment for the $70 + hst, worth of coverage per visit.  This may  be used IN CLINIC ONLY.

DVA:  If a home visit is required call Blue Cross (1-866-811-6060 ext.4) BEFORE for eligibility. A maximum of $150 per at home treatment may be given.

FIRST NATIONS HEALTH CARE:  First Nations Populations are billed through MSP the same way as those on premium assistance and they have the same allowance of coverage ($23/session for up to 10 overall treatments).   Treatment fees are to be paid by the patient at the time of the appointment, and reimbursed through MSP.

There is a possibility for more coverage through the individuals band. They must inquire with their band for eligibility.

ICBC:  New Changes as of Jan 2012, ICBC now categorizes Massage Therapy as nondiscretionary Therapy as per Physiotherapy and Chiropractic. This means that treatment is automatically approved for a claimant injured in an MVA.  A patient can seek and receive Massage Therapy any time after an MVA, provided that the claim is still open.   An MD referral is no longer necessary for the first 12 treatments. But the therapist is required to assess and determine that their treatment plan is reasonable and necessary.  ICBC is regulated to pay a minimum 12 treatments but as the discretion to authorize further therapy (up to 20 treatments). A request for more than 12 treatments is given if further therapy is recommended by an MD, and again the treatments are deemed to be reasonable and necessary.  All treatment fees are to be paid by the patient at the time of the appointment, and reimbursed through ICBC.  Please check with your adjuster or lawyer regarding coverage and eligibility.  If you have a lawyer, then an authorization can be faxed to the office for the number of payments that the lawyer will cover.

WCB: Sorry, we do not have direct billing with WCB, if you wish to see our therapist, you may do so by paying at the time of the treatment.

 

We recommend confirming your coverage with MSP, ICBC, WCB and/or your extended medical provider prior to booking an appointment.
