ICBC, WorkSafe BC & Extended Health Benefits – Telehealth FAQ

Please note that Telehealth coverage policies are evolving day by day, and as such we will continue to update this section as more information becomes available. If you do not see your insurer listed here, we have yet to receive an update from them surrounding their Telehealth policy and associated coverage. Please see below for the information we have been able to compile thus far. 

Because companies are updating their policies regularly, we strongly recommend that you contact your extended health care provider directly to confirm Telehealth coverage prior to booking your appointment. 

If you have any additional information from your extended health care provider regarding telehealth coverage or have any questions, please reach out to us at telehealth@totaltherapy.ca.
