Apply for a vendor number
The process of applying for a vendor account and/or adding a practitioner to an existing vendor account has changed. Please carefully review ICBC vendor number application requirements and/or applying to add practitioners to an existing vendor account and follow the links below to begin the application or adding a practitioner process.
If you are treating ICBC customers prior to receiving your approved ICBC vendor number or your practitioner addition request approval, you are required to collect payment directly from the customer for those services. We will not accept backdated invoicing for services provided prior to an approved ICBC vendor number.
Please note: Due to a high volume of applications, you will receive a reply from our vendor vetting team approximately ten weeks from the date your application was received.
If your application does not include all of the required documents and meet all of the qualifications, it will be rejected and you will need to re-apply.
As outlined with the launch of the Health Care Provider Invoicing and Reporting (HCPIR) application, our Supplier Programs Coordinators are in the process of emailing vendors to request documentation to reconcile accounts. Vendor requirements can be found below.
