Do you provide psychology treatments to ICBC customers injured in a car crash? Here are a few things you should know.
Invoicing and reporting
Psychologists approved to treat ICBC customers and who have met ICBC’s vendor number requirements may use the Health Care Provider Invoicing and Reporting (HCPIR) application or the Health Care Provider Portal (HCPP) to submit invoices and reports directly to ICBC.
Immediate family members may be eligible for grief counselling support to cope with the loss of their loved one involved in a crash May 1, 2021 or later. Invoices for these sessions cannot be submitted using HCPIR/HCPP; they must be submitted using the
manual billing and document submission process.
Note: In the report templates, below invoice information, claimant information and practitioner information, there is a section called Assessment Date(s). This section includes four different date fields, which permits a psychologist to indicate that more than one visit was needed to conduct an assessment. By providing a psychologist with up to four visits to complete an initial assessment report, the psychologist is able to use an additional three visits, billable at the standard treatment fee, to conduct a fulsome assessment and to ensure that the report is completed in its entirety.
Psychologists are expected to assess patients and determine their treatment plans in accordance with the College practice standards, using evidence-informed practice when establishing a diagnosis and providing treatments.
Refer to the Minor Injury Regulation made under the Insurance (Vehicle) Act when treating a patient with an injury listed in sections 3 or 4 in the Diagnostic and Treatment Protocols.
