What is Work Injury Coverage?

Clinics in this category are able to provide rehabilitation services for a work injury insurance provider.  Depending on the province, the name/entity of the insurance provider will be different; for example, in Ontario it is WSIB and in Alberta it is WCB.  Policies and procedures will also vary depending on the province.

In general, the first visit with the physiotherapist is your assessment.  If it is a work injury, your physiotherapist will submit all the necessary paperwork and await approval.  If your claim is approved, your appointments should covered by the insurance provider. 

The policies and procedures governing claims for a work injury are usually very regulated.  For more information, please contact the clinic providing this type of service.
