Depending on your situation and the treatment that you are receiving, you may be protected by external coverage, which can save you out-of-pocket expenses.
As of July 2012, Alberta Health care has been re-instated for seniors! Each senior has access to $200 of care per year (Blue Cross calendar year runs from July 1 – June 30). Coverage is $25 maximum per visit, for an annual total of eight visits. The coverage is administered through Blue Cross and we will assist you in making sure you receive this coverage.
Private Insurance Claims
The services that we offer at Oakridge Chiropractic are often covered by secondary insurance plans. With the exception of motor vehicle and Worker’s Compensation injuries, we do not direct bill insurance companies but assist you in ensuring that you get reimbursed. Please ensure that you are familiar with your policy as it relates to extended health benefits.
Have you been injured in an accident? Oakridge Chiropractic provides a range of treatments that can get you back on your feet. To ensure that you receive the coverage that you’re entitled to, we encourage you to understand your options:
Calgary Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) Claims
If you’ve been injured at your workplace, the Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) can help. With the aim of helping injured workers return to employment, the WCB provides support through compensation and rehabilitation services. To ensure that you get the care you need and that the WCB can help, you need to follow the proper process and meet the required deadlines. This requires quick action after your accident.
For details about what to do if you are injured on the job and coverage information, you can contact our clinic or visit the WCB website.
Calgary Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) Claims
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, time is of the essence; please inform the reception staff that you’ve been in a motor vehicle accident when booking. When you arrive at our office you’ll need to complete the required forms for your insurer and then we will carry out an exam to determine your diagnosis and treatment plan. This must be completed within 10 business days of your accident. By acting quickly, you can ensure that you receive the coverage that you’re entitled to.
