Important Coverage Information:
Employer Extended Health Plans / Benefits
We bill directly to your extended health plan.
Our services are covered by most health care insurance plans. If you are insured through Blue Cross, Great-West Life, Sunlife or Greenshield, we are happy to directly bill your insurance company for our services. While those listed above are the main insurers that allow direct billing, other insurance companies may also allow direct billing. Please feel free to contact us or your insurer if you have questions.
Motor Vehicle Collision Coverage
We bill directly to your insurance company for you.
In Alberta ‘minor’ injuries (e.g. a sore neck or back) sustained in a motor vehicle collision are covered through the Alberta Diagnostic and Treatment Protocols. Your Physiotherapist will further explain these protocols on your first day at the clinic. If you do qualify to be treated under these protocols we will bill your insurance company directly.
If you don’t qualify for the protocols (i.e. your injuries are more severe, or its been longer then 2 -3 weeks since your accident) we may have to use your extended health care benefits that cover therapy first. Any remaining balances for services are then covered by your auto insurance plan. On your first visit, you may be asked to provide information about your extend health plan. We will take the time to ensure you completely understand your coverage.
If you do not have extended health care benefits to cover therapy, your treatments may be billed directly through your auto insurance company.
Workers Compensation Board (WCB)
We bill directly to WCB for you.
WCB provides physiotherapy coverage for workers injured on the job. We bill WCB directly for treatments, assist to 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 WCB paperwork that you may be unsure about.
Alberta Health Care (AHS)
Momentum Health does not have a contract with the AHS. If you have broken a bone, had surgery or if you are on any of Alberta Governance Assistance programs (e.g. Seniors Cash Benefits, AISH), or considered to be of low income by the province, we would be happy to refer you to a clinic with coverage and then welcome you back to our clinic once that funding is exhausted. If you think this might be the case please let the front staff know and they will be happy to help you understand your options.
Alberta Blue Cross Billing
Momentum Health will bill Alberta Blue Cross directly for physiotherapy and chiropractic treatments for members of:
- Canadian Forces
- Veterans Affairs
