TENS Machine covered through VAC?
« on: December 09, 2016, 15:25:10 »
I have a lower back injury that I am receiving benefits for, VAC covers massage and chiropractic.  Does anyone know if VAC covers the cost of a TENS machine, through Blue Cross. TIA

Is that what you arelooking for?  Please note I plugged in Ontario as the province.  You can change that for where you live.

FYI:  VAC will cover up to $500.00 towards a TENS machine, once every 5 years.  You will need a prescription and have a need based upon your claimed condition.

ie: Back Injury - needed to treat chronic pain.
