           Registered Massage Therapy is covered by most extended health plans. Check with your employer or provider to find out about your coverage!


Extended Health Benefits Plan:

If you or your spouse have an extended health benefits plan, you may be covered for the full or partial amount of a Registered Massage Therapy treatment.  To find out your coverage please check the booklet you would have received from your provider, or call them directly.

  • You are required to pay for massage therapy services at the time of treatment. After payment, you will receive a receipt which you can submit directly to your provider for reimbursement.     

MSP: 

If you qualify for BC Health Premium Assistance, you are entitled to $23   toward any Registered Massage Therapy treatment (also includes Physiotherapy, Acupuncture and Chiro) to a total of 10 treatments (combined) per calendar year.

Enter your health care number and your year of birth. An automated recording will tell you if you qualify and how many treatments you have remaining.

ICBC: 

ICBC now categorizes Registered Massage Therapy as nondiscretionary therapy, which means that treatment is automatically approved for a claimant injured in an MVA.  ICBC will reimburse you for $23 (+HST) for each massage therapy treatment up to a total of 12 treatments (Doctors note not required).

    • You will be required to pay for the full cost of the massage up front, and will receive a receipt to submit to ICBC for reimbursement.

WCB:   

If you qualify for massage therapy coverage through WCB, you are entitled to receive $30 towards each massage you are covered for. Please speak to your adjuster for more information on your coverage.

  • You will be required to pay for the full cost of massage up front, and will receive a receipt to submit to WCB for reimbursement
