Funding

There are many ways to access funding options when seeking treatment at our centres.

Physiotherapy treatment is usually covered in health benefit plans. Check your plan for coverage details and if your insurer requires a doctor referral for reimbursement. Depending on your insurance company, you may even have access to direct billing.

Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) coverage

If you are injured at work, WCB will normally approve up to 21 treatment visits over six weeks. WCB pays for the first visit and after reports are submitted they will notify us if you claim has been accepted. Contact our clinics for more information.

Automobile insurance

If you have been injured in a car accident seek treatment within 10 days of your accident. Your insurance company will normally pre-approve up to 21 treatment visits over a 12 week period. You can consult a licensed physiotherapist directly and you do not need a physician referral.

Veteran’s Affairs, Canadian Armed Forces, RCMP

If you are a veteran or currently serving with the Armed Forces or the RCMP, you may have access to funding for therapy services through your government benefits. Contact Panther Sports and your health coordinator for more information.
