What's New?

New WorkSafeBC policy for workers who have undergone an amputation associated with an accepted work related injury.

Each year the eligible claimant receives annual benefits associated with their amputation for a clothing allowance. These injured workers should be made aware of their choice to use these funds to have their clothing lined with Farabloc fabric or purchase required clothing made of Farabloc fabric for the ongoing relief of phantom limb pain. There is no pre authorization or any administration required involving WorkSafeBC for individuals to use their funds to receive Farabloc applications that reduce their chronic pain.

Cutting Red Tape for Seriously Disabled Veterans

Good news for Veterans who have had service related amputations. Award Prosthetics patient/clients may receive quality prosthetics laminated with Farabloc fabric in a more timely manner. Physician involvement will no longer be required which will help veterans and their prosthetist they rely on.

Stump socks or limb covers should be considered “over the counter” items which as the Veterans information indicates will not require a prescription and appear to be eligible for reimbursement with the usual forms used by Veterans. As the Veterans information indicates,,, this only makes sense.

This one administrative improvement alone will facilitate those veterans coping with chronic pain to access and receive without administrative or other barrier limb covers/stump socks including Farabloc applications which have shown to so effectively help amputees.
