Naturopathic physicians and WorkSafeBC

When a worker in B.C. suffers an injury as a result of a workplace accident or disease, WorkSafeBC pays the cost of appropriate treatment on accepted claims according to the fee schedule established by WorkSafeBC pursuant to Section 21 of the Workers Compensation Act (the Act). Under the Act, a naturopathic physician may not charge any additional fees to an injured worker for treatment accepted on the claim.

Naturopathic physicians not wishing to accept the terms outlined in the fee schedule should not provide treatment to injured workers.

To verify the status of a claim

Call WorkSafeBC's Claims Call Centre to determine if a claim has been submitted and accepted. Or, check the claim status online.
