Insurance Coverage

Your physiotherapy treatment may be covered by insurance.

Physiotherapy in a private practice clinic is not covered by Manitoba Health (provincial medical coverage) regardless of whether it is prescribed by a physician. However, you may be eligible to have the cost of your treatment covered by some type of insurance:

  • Manitoba WCB If you file a claim for an insured work-related injury and your claim is accepted, WCB will pay for your initial assessment, plus 20 treatments. Coverage for additional treatments is decided by WCB on a case-by-case basis. Fees for treatment are governed by the WCB – Private Physiotherapist Contract.
  • Manitoba Public Insurance (Autopac)If you file a claim for a bodily injury resulting from a motor vehicle accident, MPI will pay for your initial assessment, plus a set number of treatments; the number of allowable treatments is determined by the type of injury you have. Fees for treatment are governed by the Manitoba Public Insurance – Private Physiotherapist Contract.
  • Veterans, Canadian Forces and RCMP MembersVeterans, Canadian Forces, and RCMP members have coverage on a pre-authorized basis through a Federal Blue Cross plan. Fees and allowable treatment limits are governed by the Federal Blue Cross – Physiotherapy agreement.
  • Manitoba Blue CrossIf you have an extended health benefit plan, your coverage will include physiotherapy; the amount of coverage is determined by the type of plan you have. Check your policy literature for information on your specific plan, or ask our office staff to assist you.
  • Other Private Group Insurance PlansMany people have coverage through a private group insurance plan administered by their employer. There are numerous private health insurance carriers, but examples of some of the more common ones are Great-West Life, Sunlife, Chambers of Commerce, Greenshield, and Sirius, to name a few. Check your policy literature or speak with your employer/plan administrator for information about physiotherapy coverage in your specific plan.
  • Individuals Without CoverageIndividuals who do not have third-party coverage, or whose insurance coverage has been used up, can still attend for treatment and pay for the service themselves.

Payment Options
We offer direct billing to WCB, MPI, all Blue Cross Plans, and numerous private Group Insurance * plans.

* Please ask our office staff for information on whether your insurance plan allows direct billing. Some plans do not allow direct billing by service providers; they require that you pay for your treatment and submit your receipts for reimbursement.
