Enjoy the streamlined support of direct billing for MVA recovery care. Acupuncture can bridge the gap between lingering symptoms and full recovery. Read on for more details about billing, coverage details and why (I think) acupuncture is of benefit in every recovery care plan.
Direct billing to ICBC after an MVA to help lower the financial burden is available here.
Coverage begins immediately, don't delay.
Acupuncture is a whole body/mind/spirit type of treatment.
Why I think shock and acute trauma are best supported by this approach.
Need to stop pain from tension and soft tissue injury,
but also calm and regulate the nervous system?
ICBC Acupuncture does both.
12 pre-approved ICBC acupuncture sessions are available within the first 90 days after the date of the accident.
You DO NOT need an MD referral during this period of coverage. Book right away - it is simpler to begin treatment during this time frame.
Pre-approval of ICBC Acupuncture coverage ends after the first 90 days, but that doesn't mean access to coverage is lost.
Practitioners can complete a request for treatment form and wait to hear a response from the adjuster, and in many cases, MD referrals are not required for approval.
Continue to online booking and just make a note of your accident date in the intake paperwork.
ICBC direct billing pays a set rate for acupuncture sessions of $111 for an initial appointment and $94 for subsequent sessions, any amount above that rate is the responsibility of the client.
- ICBC does not pay for missed appointment fees, normal clinic policy will apply.
- if clients have other extended health care they may contact their provider and ask if the client's amount is claimable by their other plan and can choose to submit themselves. Some plans do, some don't.
The force of impact has a disruptive element on the way energy flows and functions through the body.
There's 2 specific treatments to help support that energetic getting back to a regulated state for healing.
Not seeing the impact coming can impact the psyche's ability to process the event very challenging.
Acupuncture can support the body's memory of the event be integrated into your consciousness to help move forward in recovery.
Fear and anxiety are common after an MVA and driving may become increasingly stressful.
Acupuncture includes and integrates emotional well-being between the body and psyche while addressing overall stress levels.
Often other modalities need to wait for acute injury to reduce before treating.
Acupuncture can address highly inflamed areas without direct treatment while still having a huge healing impact to the area of injury.
The emotional impact (pardon the pun) of car accidents can be varied and an unexpected aspect of recovery to support.
Acupuncture supports the return to harmonized function and flow in the body/mind/spirit.
The holistic approach of Chinese Medicine is a powerful ally to pain management in treatments that are deeply relaxing and down-regulating for the nervous system.
And in case you're wondering, the needles themselves aren't painful.
