FUNDING YOUR PHYSIOTHERAPY
Not everyone will understand the different types of funding and that's okay. We are happy to assist you in navigating the different fundings options.
PRIVATE INSURANCE/ EXTENDED HEALTH BENEFITS
Extended Health Care benefits are designed to supplement existing government plans. The benefit allows for the reimbursement of expenses and services not covered by existing government plans, including physiotherapy.
WORKPLACE SAFETY AND INSURANCE BOARD (WSIB)
Our physiotherapists are registered with WSIB. This allows out clinic to initiate WSIB claims and carry out physiotherapy services covered by WSIB. However, prior to paying for physiotherapy, some insurers will require a physician’s referral.
MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT (MVA)
In the unfortunate event that you are injured during a MVA, your physiotherapy treatment is often covered by your auto insurance plan. The type and severity of your injury will determine the amount of coverage that will be available by your auto insurance provider.
ALTERNATIVE PAYMENT PLAN (APP)
At Thunder Bay Physiotherapy Centre we have a specialized contract, called an Alternative Payment Program (APP), through the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care which can help with funding when needed. Please contact the clinic for further information about this.
DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS (DVA)
Our physiotherapists are registered DVA service providers. We are happy to provide this funding option for our veterans.
