I cannot afford to pay up front.
What can you do for me?
We are able to bill on your behalf through your extended health care plan, if you are eligible. However you are responsible for any fees not paid by the insurance company. A valid credit card is required in this case as a security measure.
Are Physiotherapy Services covered by OHIP?
OHIP coverage is limited to persons 65 and over, 19 and younger, those receiving benefits under the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) or Family Works, residents of long-term care homes, or persons who require physiotherapy to treat a condition for which they have stayed in hospital overnight.
If you meet any of these criteria, you will have to find one of the few OHIP registered clinics in Ontario. Current OHIP reimbursement levels for physiotherapy service are minimal, and the rehabilitation services offered by these clinics is consequently limited.
