Back in July I decided to throw the bike down the road. Knocked out, broken bones, blah blah blah. Long story short the meat wagon brought me to the hospital where I spend 5 days. Bike was technically a writeoff (damage > value) but I don't carry collision so I just had it trucked home. Kinda wanted to keep ICBC out of it as I don't feel like claiming a single vehicle incident.
Leo's showed up and wrote a report, but no tickets or anything were given.
Fast forward to today, got a bill in the mail for $530 for the 5 minute trip to the hospital. To quote BCAS, this is for
"persons with no valid BC Care Card (e.g. visitors to BC/non-residents, as well as work related injuries, claims under RCMP, and other federal agencies)."
Yes I am a BC resident with a carecard. I guess this has to do with the 'claim under rcmp' clause, but what does a 'claim' under the rcmp mean? The fact they showed up to see what happened and wrote a report?
Anyone have experience with this?
