Understanding Your Enhanced Care Benefits and How to Make the Most of Them.

Are you navigating recovery after a recent crash? The first 12 weeks are crucial for your rehabilitation journey, and understanding your benefits can make a significant difference. Here’s everything you need to know about accessing treatment and maximizing your recovery during this critical period.

1. Enhanced Care Coverage: What You Need to Know

Since May 2021, Enhanced Care has revolutionized coverage for crash victims, ensuring pre-approved treatments for everyone during the initial 12 weeks post-accident, regardless of fault. This means you can begin your recovery journey without delay, with treatments tailored to your needs.

2. Booking Your Appointments: Act Quickly to Maximize Benefits

With Enhanced Care, time is of the essence. Ensure you book your appointments promptly to capitalize on your pre-approved treatments fully. Providers may request your ICBC claim number for direct billing, so keep it handy to streamline the process.

3. Prioritizing Your Recovery Goals: Active vs. Passive Treatments

Active participation in your recovery journey is key to maximizing benefits. Your healthcare provider can help tailor a plan focusing on restoring function while managing pain effectively. Balancing active and passive treatments is crucial, with an emphasis on activities that promote physical restoration.

4. Pre-Approved Treatments: Understanding Your Coverage

During the initial 12 weeks post-crash, you have access to a range of pre-approved treatments, including physiotherapy, chiropractic care, massage therapy, and more. No referrals are necessary, but ensure you have your Personal Health Number (PHN) and ICBC claim number on hand.

5. Additional Benefits for Cyclists and Pedestrians

If you were injured as a cyclist or pedestrian, you’re entitled to the same comprehensive care and recovery benefits as drivers. This includes income replacement if you’re unable to work, and coverage for bike damage if you’re not responsible for the crash.
