ICBC reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to withdraw, suspend or deny a vendor number, or to refuse direct billing for specific treatment providers. ICBC may take such action in circumstances that include, but are not limited to:
A health care provider is or becomes subject to practice restrictions, limits or conditions;
A regulatory body or professional association
commences or has conducted a misconduct investigation, or
reprimands or disciplines a health care provider;

If you are treating ICBC claimants, prior to receiving your approved ICBC vendor number/practitioner addition request approval, you are required to collect payment directly from the claimant for those services. We will not accept backdated invoicing for services provided prior to approval.
