Notice to Injured Workers Receiving Chiropractic Care
Friday, May 13, 2016


Please note that WorkplaceNL is continuing to pay chiropractors for the care provided to injured workers. While there have been statements made indicating that workers will have to pay chiropractors themselves after May 18th, this is not the case.  

The Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Act requires that WorkplaceNL supervise and control medical aid.  If you have been approved by WorkplaceNL for chiropractic treatment, WorkplaceNL will pay for those approved treatments.  Under the Act, the chiropractor is not permitted to bill you directly for approved treatments.  

Injured workers are advised not to pay out-of-pocket for chiropractic care related to their workplace injury, and should contact their Case Manager if asked to do so.
