Submitting reports and invoices
Billing us electronically through Teleplan or My Provider Services is the fastest way for you to get paid. Our fee schedule explains our rates for massage therapy services, and you can check your payment status online.
A Massage Therapy Report is required within five days from the initial assessment and when requested by WorkSafeBC.

Requesting treatment beyond eight weeks
If treatment is recommended beyond the initial eight weeks, approval is required. You must submit an Extension of Massage Therapy Treatment Request by the end of the sixth week of treatment and wait for approval before providing services.

Fee schedule and invoicing guidelines
Our massage therapy fee schedule sets out the rates we pay for your services.
When invoicing us, please follow these guidelines:
- Treatment services will be paid on accepted claims only. If treatment is provided on a pending claim, you can bill the injured worker and then if the claim is accepted, reimburse the worker and bill us directly.
- Treatment beyond eight weeks from the date of injury must be approved before invoicing for services.
- Treatment will only be paid on injury areas that are accepted on the claim.
- The worker is responsible for paying for treatment on non-claim related areas. We recommend scheduling treatment to non-claim areas separately.
- Additional fees cannot be charged to an injured worker (e.g., rehabilitation equipment, user or administration fees).
- We do not pay for missed, late, or cancelled appointments.
