As we begin another season, the following procedures relating to participant injuries should be noted and reviewed with the appropriate person(s) in your association.
Coverage is not in effect for services or treatments that are insured services (BC Medical Services Plan, Extended Benefits, Dental Plans, etc.)
Hockey Canada is a secondary insurer. If a participant has Extended Benefits or other insurance, request for payment must be filed with the Extended Benefits or other insurance prior to any reimbursement being made from Hockey Canada. However, the injury claim form must still be submitted to the BC Hockey office within 90 days of the injury. Any coverage statements from the participant’s Extended Benefits or other insurance should be forwarded to the BC Hockey office along with the invoices and receipts.
If the family does not have Extended Benefits or other insurance coverage and the participant is a resident of Canada with provincial coverage, then coverage is in place for services such as ambulance transportation, prescriptions, crutches, collars, and physiotherapy treatments after the provincial medical has been exhausted.
Regardless of the severity of the injury, a Hockey Canada Injury Report Form must be completed and submitted. This applies to all situations, including those where no corresponding monetary claim will be submitted.
