WorkSafeBC

WorkSafeBC is created by and charged with the administration of the Workers Compensation Act R.S.B.C. 1996 c. 492 as amended (the “Act”), under which it has the authority to provide health care and rehabilitation services to workers who sustain injuries that arise out of and in the course of their employment. In the exercise of its authority WorkSafeBC has established a series of programs and services with different criteria and mandates that are designed to meet injured worker and referral source needs, and to assist injured workers with recovery from injury with a primary focus on returning to work in a safe and timely manner.
Medical services insured by WorkSafeBC must be billed to WorkSafeBC. MSP does not cover those services. Declined WorkSafeBC invoices can be resubmitted to MSP.

WorkSafeBC Payments

The only way to bill WorkSafeBC electronically is using MSP Teleplan. MSP Teleplan serves as a billing agent for WorkSafeBC for registered massage therapists, physiotherapists, chiropractors and physicians. Other professions have to bill WorkSafeBC by other means, usually by faxing their reports and invoices to WorkSafeBC.
WorkSafeBC adjudicates claims and makes payments twice a month, in accordance with MSP Payment Schedule. The frequency of WorkSafeBC payments is the same for all MSP billing options: opt in, soft opt out and hard opt out. That means that hard opt out practitioners receive remittance reports on MSP claims only once a month, but reports on WorkSafeBC payments twice a month.
Only practitioners, clinics or hospitals can be payees of WorkSafeBC. Patients cannot receive payments from WorkSafeBC.
The form of WorkSafeBC payments depends on MSP billing option of the practitioner. Soft Opt Out practitioners and Opt In practitioners can apply for direct bank deposit of WorkSafeBC payments. Hard Opt Out practitioners only receive WorkSafeBC payments in cheques.

Checking WorkSafeBC Claim Status

Medical and healthcare practitioners are required to confirm the status of the WorkSafeBC claim before performing a treatment of the injury that occurred at work.

The WorkSafeBC claim is valid if
  • the claim status is active and
  • the claim eligibility is allowed and
  • at least one injury is accepted.
You can check the status of the claim online or by phone.
To check WorkSafeBC claim status online
  • Go to WorkSafeBC Claim Status portal
  • Enter

Checking the Status of WorkSafeBC Billing Item

WorkSafeBC fees are time sensitive. Late reports and invoices are severely penalized. There are three ways to ensure that your submitted WorkSafeBC reports and/or invoices have successfully reached WorkSafeBC.

To confirm that WorkSafeBC has received your 8/11 reports or invoices, WorkSafeBC usually lists all received items in the remittance report, even if they haven’t been processed yet. Such items are shown with the explanatory code BK. This code shows that the submission is pending and there is no need to re-bill.
Another way to check that WorkSafeBC received your report or invoice is to use its online service. After you have submitted an electronic or faxed WorkSafeBC item, you can check its payment and/or delivery status online. For electronic submissions, you need to know
  • Payee MSP number (usually treating practitioner)
  • Data Centre number
  • WorkSafeBC claim #
For faxed submissions, you need to know
  • Payee MSP number (usually treating practitioner)
  • Invoice Ref #
Invoice Ref # – The Invoice Reference Number is the number that you (the provider) include on your invoices to identify yourself and to help with payment reconciliation. Invoices that do not include an Invoice Reference Number cannot be searched. Always create an Invoice Ref # for your faxed reports and invoices.
To check the status of the submitted WorkSafeBC 8/11 report or invoice call WorkSafeBC call centre at
  • 604-231-8888 or
  • toll free 1-888-967-5377.
