Our Owen Sound and Port Elgin clinics both have registered physiotherapists trained to assess and treat conditions that affect the muscles, nerves, and bones. These may be caused by work, sports, motor vehicle collision injuries and chronic conditions.
Our Port Elgin clinic serves the communities of Saugeen Shores, Sauble Beach, Wiarton, Chesley, Paisley, Walkerton and area.
Most insurers cover physiotherapy—it’s good to know how much they will cover before you start your program. We will expect payment after each visit and provide an official receipt, which is used for recovery of the amount from your insurance company. We will assist with your paperwork to make it easier for you if needed.
- We bill your insurance company directly for you
If you have extended health-care benefits that cover therapy, auto insurance companies in Ontario require that your claim be placed through your extended health plan first. Any remaining balances for services are then covered by your auto accident insurance plan. On your first visit, you may be asked to provide information about your extended health plan. If you do not have an extended health-care benefits plan which covers therapy, your treatments may be billed directly through your auto accident insurance company.
- We bill directly to WSIB for you
WSIB provides physiotherapy coverage for workers injured on the job. We bill WSIB directly for treatments provided, complete necessary forms, progress reports, treatment extensions and communicate with adjudicators, your workplace and other healthcare professionals involved in your treatment. Our team can help you navigate through any WSIB paperwork that you may be unsure about.
