Funding

FIVE FUNDING OPTIONS FOR PATIENTS

There are several funding options available in Alberta for those seeking physiotherapy treatment.

Read below for more information about each of these treatment pathways. If you would like additional information, please feel free to contact us. For pricing details, please click here.

1. Extended Health Benefits
Acceleration Physiotherapy Sherwood Park can direct bill most extended health benefit plans. Please let us know if you have private coverage prior to your first appointment.

Assessment = $120
Treatment = $90
Treatment (extended, 45-minute) = $105*

*This option is for those who are having multiple body sites treated in one visit.

2. Motor Vehicle Accident Insurance
If you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident, you can access treatment through car insurance benefits, whether or not you are at fault for the accident. Contact your health care provider (physiotherapist, doctor, etc) to ensure the required paperwork is completed within 10 business days of the accident.

3. Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB)
If you were injured while at work, funding may be available upon approval through the Workers’ Compensation Board. You’ll need to ensure the proper WCB forms are completed on time. Pending WCB approval, you MAY qualify for a set number of treatments over a specified period of time.

4. Private Pay
If you don’t have coverage, or your coverage is through an insurance company that doesn’t allow direct billing, Acceleration Physiotherapy will accept the following forms of payment: credit card through our secure online billing system, e-transfer, or debit.

Assessment = $120
Treatment = $90

5. Alberta Health Services
Funding exists for physiotherapy through Alberta Health Services for patients who have undergone surgery, suffered a fracture, or qualify based on income. However, not all clinics have access to this funding, as it was previously capped by the government.

Because Acceleration Physiotherapy Sherwood Park opened after the government limited the funding, it does not receive coverage through the program. You may still choose to attend our clinic, but please know that you will be responsible for the cost.

If you are interested in booking through the AHS-funded program and you have NOT had surgery or a fracture, you’ll need to call the Alberta Health Services Rehabilitation Advice Line at 1-833-379-0563. Someone will assess you over the phone and determine if you qualify for in-person treatment based on your income level (only those who fall below the determined income level will receive funded treatment).

If you’ve had surgery or a fracture, you can contact a funded clinic directly.
