Is there any coverage to help me pay for treatments?
Massage Therapy is usually covered by extended health care, there may be a cap (only a certain amount you can claim per year), and the coverage is usually a certain percentage of fee. Please contact your service provider for information on your coverage.
MSP can also be claimed for Massage Therapy using form # HLTH2944. Rebate is $23 per massage treatment. You would pay for the massage and then mail in a form for rebate.
Most Veterans receive up to 15 visits a year with a cap of $105 per treatment toward Massage Therapy. Requests can be made for more treatments, or for coverage on increased hourly price due to need for mobile Massage Therapy by therapist. Please call Veterans Affairs with your K# to check what coverage you may have. The therapist bills Veterans Affairs so you do not have to pay for your visit within allowed coverage.
If you are involved in an accident ICBC or your lawyer may pay for treatments until you receive settlement usually with a doctor's note.
Do I need a doctors referral?
Generally no referral is needed for any Therapy. A doctor's referral is required if a client is severely ill, has contraindications to Therapy, or is a palliative patient. Please feel free to call if you have questions regarding contraindications, or doctors referrals.
Some insurance providers may want a doctor's note for Massage Therapy treatments, please check with your extended health care provider. If you have a claim through ICBC or WCB please check in with your case worker regarding doctors notes and approved treatments. Veterans will need a doctors note.
Do you bring supplies with you when you treat on site?
Yes! The only things you may need are pillows and a blanket. No new clients at this time due to Covid 19
Will you come to the hospital or treat someone in a long term care facility?
Mobile service includes hospital visits or visits to a care facility. Often these treatments take place not on a massage table, but in a wheelchair, or hospital bed. Temporarily suspended due to Covid 19
Do you treat people in wheelchairs or hospital beds? Yes
If I am coming to your location where do I park?
You can park anywhere you see a space
