Physicians

When people have a work-related injury or disease, we help them get the health care and rehabilitation services they need. This may include consultation with a general practitioner or specialist.

Becoming a provider

There's no formal process or contract required for general practitioners or specialist physicians to work with us. You need to be in good standing with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C., check the worker's claim status with us before beginning treatment, and follow the negotiated fee schedules.

Checking the worker's claim status

Prior to beginning treatment, you'll need to verify that the worker's claim has been accepted.

You can use our view claim status tool to check an injured worker's claim status with us.

You can also check an injured worker's claim by calling our Teleclaim team.

Post-operative rehabilitation guidelines

Medical specialists and physiotherapists from our Medical and Return to Work Planning (MARP) program network, in conjunction with the Visiting Specialist Clinic surgeons, have developed a standardized approach to post-operative treatments based on an extensive review of current surgical, nursing, and rehabilitation literature.

As guidelines are developed, they are sent in draft format to medical and surgical specialists, physiotherapists, and their respective professional associations for evaluation and feedback. Once necessary changes are made, the guidelines are made available to health care providers.

The post-operative rehabilitation guidelines provide health care practitioners, our staff, and all stakeholders with post-operative treatment plans and general recovery guidelines.
