Doctor's Referral Not Required
You do not need a doctor's referral to see a physiotherapist in BC, though a referral from a doctor or nurse may be required for some insurance plans. Check with your plan provider before booking an appointment.
Is Physio Covered?
The fees for physiotherapy are set by each clinic and vary depending on the length of visit and the treatment. Most extended medical plans cover physiotherapy, but do check with your plan provider first. Low-income people can receive supplementary coverage for physiotherapy through MSP Premium Assistance.
