Naturopath reports

To complete and submit the required reports and invoices, please use our forms.

First report

Report the services you provide to injured or ill workers on Naturopathic Physician's First Report Form 8N. This report needs to be sent to us within three business days of the patient’s first visit.

You should also use this Form 8N if any of the following circumstances apply:

  • You suspect your patient may be disabled beyond the date of injury.
  • Your patient’s claim is for a back injury, hernia, shoulder or knee strain/spring, occupational disease (e.g. repetitive strain injury, cancer, work-related asthma, or work-related dermatitis), or mental disorder.
  • We request this form even if your patient’s injury doesn’t meet these criteria.
  • This form should have been sent based on these criteria, but was not.

Progress reports

In some cases, you will need to submit a progress report for a patient. If so, use Naturopathic Physicians Progress Report Form 11N. This report needs to be sent to us if any of the following circumstances apply:

  • Your patient is not recovering as expected since you submitted your initial report, and the details of the patient’s treatment plan and recovery need to be changed.
  • Your patient's recovery is beyond the usual times.
  • Your patient is ready for return-to-work intervention.

At the top of each form, you'll find instructions for completing and submitting it to us. Type your information and complete all required sections.

Please pay special attention to the reporting and invoicing codes. Using the correct codes will help us pay you sooner.

Naturopath invoices

Use Invoice Form 11AN for your invoice.

The following information needs to be included on all invoices you submit to us:

  • Worker’s first name and surname, gender, date of birth, and WorkSafeBC claim number
  • Date of injury (if different from the treatment date)
  • Fee code
  • Side of body code
  • Body part code
  • Nature of injury code

We need your Invoice Form 11AN within 90 days of the final date you treat an injured worker. The address is on the form.

The fastest, easiest way to check the status of your invoice is through our online check invoice status tool.
