Funding for physiotherapy treatments in Alberta may be accessed through several sources. These include:
Extended Health Benefit Plans
Physiotherapy is usually covered in health benefit plans. We understand that submitting claims can be time consuming and difficult. Dynamic Physiotherapy therefore offers DIRECT BILLING SERVICES. Bring your insurance card to your first appointment and our reception staff will determine if your plan allows direct billiing. We currently offer direct billing services with the following insurers;
Great West Life
Alberta Blue Cross
Sun Life Financial
Green Shield Canada
Chambers of Commerce Group Insurance Plan
Alberta School Employee Benefit Plan
And several more.....
If you have been injured in a car accident, you are entitled to physiotherapy treatment funded by automobile insurance. You may consult a licensed physiotherapist directly and do not require a physician referral. You may attend the physiotherapist clinic of your choosing, and Dynamic Physiotherapy has experience dealing with all major automobile insureres in Alberta.
Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) coverage
If you are injured at work you may be entitled to physiotherapy funded by the WCB. Your injury must be reported to your employer. WCB will pay for your initial visit. Our therapist will subsequently submit an assessment report to the WCB and they will notify us if your claim has been accepted for further visits. Typically 21 treatments over six weeks are approved.
Veteran’s Affairs, Canadian Armed Forces, RCMP
If you are currently serving with the Armed Forces or the RCMP, or if you are a veteran you may have access to funding for physiotherapy. Contact Dynamic Physiotherapy to determine your eligibility.
Alberta Health Care
Currently Alberta Health Care funding for physiotherapy in the Calgary region is limited to post-fracture and post-surgical rehabiliatation. If you have had a fracture or surgery that qualifies for Health Care funded Physiotherapy please refer to the Alberta Health Care website for a list of locations where this funding is available.
