Bill for services overview

We want to help you get paid as quickly as possible for treating injured workers. Here you'll find an overview of our reporting and invoicing requirements, including injury and reporting codes, and GST and PST. Keep in mind that we must pre-approve some treatments and services.

Fee codes for your practice

For the specific fee codes and dollar amounts you can bill for your practice, review your contract or visit health care Provider Types, or Rehabilitation Programs & Services.

Reporting and invoicing requirements summary

When completing your reports and invoices, please use our codes to indicate the injury you treated and the services you provided. These are the codes you may need:

Please use these Side of Body codes:

Left L
Right R
Left and right B
Not applicable (for body systems, a major body part, or multiple parts) N

Some providers, such as physicians, hospitals, physiotherapists, and chiropractors, can submit their documents electronically via Teleplan. You can learn more at the Teleplan Support Centre.

If you have a contract with us, please use the forms we provide for your service. You’ll find them for your area of practice in Health Care Provider Types or Rehabilitation Programs and Services

If you do not have a contract with us, please use our Generic Invoice - Medical and Health Care form (83D128) once we've approved treatment.

Instructions for completing the forms, along with our fax number and mailing address, can be found at the top of each form.

The fastest, easiest way to check on your payment is through our online check invoice status. 

Check invoice status

As a service provider or supplier to WorkSafeBC, you determine if your supplies and services are subject to taxes. If reporting taxes on your invoice, please be sure to:

  • List your GST registration number.
  • Specify the tax amount for each line item or use a clear indicator, such as a checkmark, to show which items are taxable.

This information is essential for us to be able to process your invoice. If you do not indicate the tax per invoice line item, we may return your invoice unpaid and request that you correct and re-submit it to us.

Here's how to ensure payment for your services is processed quickly:

  1. Use our forms
    We provide forms for our required reports and invoices. Please fill in all required information, including your payee number and the worker's claim number. Send the forms to us as soon as possible.
  2. Type your information
    Typing your data into our forms ensures your information is clear and legible.
  3. Double-check the codes
    Incorrect or missing injury and invoicing codes are among the most common reasons for delays in payment.
