You may want to look into this link a little deeper, also contact BC Disability to see want is covered (some medical services are covered)
https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/heal ... red-by-msp

from the above link wrote:Other services that may be covered by MSP include supplementary benefits provided by other health care practitioners. These include acupuncture, chiropractic, massage therapy, naturopathy, physical therapy and non-surgical podiatry.


Added:it is very weird how people are not informed about services provided for PWD, it almost like pulling teeth to find out this information. Unless you directly ask, no one will voluntarily say.

Who is paying $75, is it MSP or Disability.

I would look into it deeper, MSP will cover the initial consult fee, but disability depending on the condition will cover the on going treatment if they deem it beneficial to the person's condition.

I agree but the information lacking here is what kind of disability payment her son is on. Is it work, Provincial, Federal or even military. Every one of those is going to have different coverages.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
