Rates, Coverage, & Clinic Policy

Rates

For current rates, please call the office at 604-939-7556.

MSP Coverage

BC residents with lower incomes may be eligible for registered massage therapy coverage through the BC Medical Services Plan (MSP) Premium Assistance Program. If so, MSP contributes $23 per visit for 10 visits per year. All patients are responsible for payment of the remaining balance (User Fee).

Extended Health Care

As a Registered Massage Therapist, my services are covered by most extended health care (EHC) benefit plans, including RCMP and Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) members. Most plans reimburse a percentage of your visit cost, up to a specified amount over the calendar year. Some plans require a doctor’s referral for massage therapy prior to services being rendered. For more details on the specifics of your coverage, it is highly recommended that you contact your health care provider or human resources department.

ICBC Claims

Individuals injured in a motor vehicle accident (MVA), and have a current ICBC Bodiliy Injury claim, may be eligible for subsidized registered massage therapy services. If so, ICBC will contribute $23 per visit for 12 visits within 8 weeks of the date of the MVA. Patients must provide their claim number, adjuster’s contact information, MVA date, doctor’s referral, and BC Care Card (MSP) number upon their first visit.

Clinic Policy on Cancellations & Missed Appointments

In consideration of your fellow patients and your therapist, please allow a minimum of 24 HOURS NOTICE to change or cancel your appointment. You may be charged the FULL TREATMENT COST for late cancellations or missed appointments. Those patients who have pre-paid for their treatment are NOT EXEMPT from this policy. Charges for late cancellations or missed appointments will be deducted from your pre-paid amount.

Active Release Techniques (ART) sessions are also subject to this policy.
