This form will go BC Hockey and an insurance claim will be set up for any expenses that may come out of your player’s injury. If you do not have extended medical, you submit all receipts (prescription, ambulance, physio, casts, etc.) to BC Hockey and they will reimburse you. You can submit your receipts at any time within 2 years of injury, have your players name, date of birth and association listed with the receipts when sending them in.
