FREQUENTLY ASKED PHYSIOTHERAPY QUESTIONS
WE HAVE ANSWERS
Am I covered for physiotherapy following a motor vehicle accident?
If you have suffered a sprain/strain or whiplash type of injury from a motor vehicle accident, your automobile insurance will cover 10-21 treatments in the first 90 days from the date of your accident. Clients are free to choose their physiotherapy provider and are not required to see the clinic their insurance company promotes.
Is there any public funding for physiotherapy?
Alberta Health Services provides limited funding through the Community Rehabilitation Program. Currently, only patients requiring treatment post-fracture, post-surgery, or post-procedure are covered for up to 7 treatments. There is also some low income eligibility (5 visits).
