Letter from Chris Ryan to physicians (August 5, 2020)
The pre-authorized treatment period has been extended until September 30, 2020, or 12 weeks from the date of the crash causing the injury, whichever is later. Please note the number of treatments has not increased. This extension of the pre-authorized treatment period applies to in-person and telehealth sessions for clients involved in a crash on or after December 20, 2019.
If you have ICBC approval for treatment, please continue to treat your clients according to the provincial government and your association and college's guidelines. Separate approval is not required if you are transitioning a client from telehealth to in-person sessions.
