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.

2. Motor Vehicle Accident Insurance
If you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident, you can access treatment through insurance benefits, whether or not you are at fault for the accident. You should contact your primary health care provider to ensure the appropriate 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 up to 21 treatments within a 6-week period.

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.

5. Alberta Health Services
Funding exists for physiotherapy (between 1-7 visits) through Alberta Health Services. However, it’s important to note that not all clinics have access to this funding, as it was previously capped by the government. Because Acceleration Physiotherapy opened after the cap was put in place, 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. You can also choose to attend another clinic with government funding.
