- The WCB will pay for treatment fees up to three treatment visits in weeks 9-14. The WCB retains the right to oversee the injured worker's treatment plan and may modify its approval for payment of treatment fees by providing written notice to the Chiropractor.
- X-Ray Fees - the fee for an x-ray shall be the same as the fee paid by Manitoba Health for radiology (plus actual delivery or mailing costs) and shall be adjusted in the same manner and to the same level as such fees are adjusted by Manitoba Health.
