Extended Health Care (EHC) plans are also sometimes called supplementary health or supplementary medical plans.
There are two basic types of Extended Health Care plans: group and individual. The most common type of EHC coverage in Canada is provided through workplace group benefits programs arranged by employers, unions and trade and professional associations.
If you and your family have extended health care coverage through an employee benefits plan, it's very likely that plan covers chiropractic care, physiotherapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, orthotics and more. Depending on your coverage, all or part of your treatment fees may be reimbursed by your Extended Health Care plan. If your Extended Health Care plan does not provide coverage you may still be entitled to reimbursement through a spouse's plan or a parent's plan.
We are happy to call on your behalf to determine what your eligibility is for physiotherapy, massage therapy, acupuncture or any other service offered at our facility. Our staff will do their very best to help you, however, please note that there are some Insurance companies that will not release any information to anyone other than the plan member. Should this be the case, we will be happy to direct you through the process. Many insurance companies still require a Doctor's referral to process your expense claim. Please clarify through your Insurance Provider what their requirements are. Feel free to ask our team to call on your behalf prior to the commencement of treatment in order to avoid any inconveniences to yourself. It should be noted that all deductibles and any non-covered portions of the treatment are the responsibility of the client .
