Out-of-Province Accidents

Out of Province Insurance Claims – Car Accidents, Your Health and Wellbeing


  • British Columbians in an out-of-province car crash — drivers, passengers and pedestrians — regardless of fault, have access to care
  • Canadian residents, regardless of the province you live in, who get into an accident in BC have access to care
  • Get immediate care after reporting your accident to Physiotherapy, Chiropractic Care, Acupuncture, Active Rehab, Counselling and Massage without the need for a doctor’s note
  • Seeking Care from multiple services soon after your accident increases your chance of a speedy recovery

In addition to ICBC claims, we are also specialists in out-of-province car accident and injury claims. Don’t lose access to care simply because you are a resident of another province and got into a car accident in British Columbia or are a BC resident who was involved in an accident in another province.

Do I get health care coverage if I’ve been in a car accident outside of my province?

We see cases like yours all the time and are more than happy to facilitate the care you need. The amount of care and number of sessions may depend on your individual circumstances and the jurisdiction of the accident. However, in most cases, regardless of who is at fault, everyone involved in a car accident – driver, passenger, pedestrian – will have access to healthcare.

We have experience working with all sorts of cases and have seen patients in every circumstance. We are familiar with the various protocols, forms, and will happily liaise with your insurance company, limiting your stress and anxiety so you can focus on getting better.

Please give us a call so we can begin the process and get your care going as quickly as possible. Although provincial rules vary, most out-of-province insurance claims allow you access to the following services:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Chiropractic Care
  • Kinesiology and Active Rehab
  • Acupuncture
  • Massage Therapy
  • Counselling

Do I need a Dr’s Note?

The short answer is no. You don’t need a doctor’s note to initiate the care you need or require if you do so within 12 weeks after the accident date. Once you have reported your claim, you will have a claim number. Once you share that information with us, along with the name and contact details of your insurance company, you can get started!
