ICBC Injury Claims
Call ICBC (604-520-8222 or 1-800-910-4222) to set up a claim where you will be given a claim number.
If this is a new accident within 3 months of the injury, you do not require a doctor's referral for your initial 25 treatments, unless specified by your ICBC claim specialist. However your treatment must be pre-approved by ICBC.
If you need an extension for physiotherapy treatment after the initial 25 treatments or if your injury is more than 3 months old, you will require a doctor's referral.
