Fees

MVA Direct Billing

 

If you have been in a Motor Vehicle Accident, you must report to your insurance company immediately then see a primary caregiver such as your Family Doctor, Chiropractor or Physiotherapist to determine the severity of your injury. Once an AB-1 form has been filled out and your are pre-approved for the 21 treatment visits, you can book with our massage therapists or acupuncturists for treatments. 

 

Please note that you DO NOT need a doctor or chiropractor referral to see our massage therapists or acupuncturists. Once pre-approved for 21 visits, you may choose to use those visits with any practitioner you want. Under the new Alberta Minor Injury Regulation, you have 90 days from the day of the accident to receive up to 21 pre-approved treatments. 

 

Our therapists will provide quality therapeutic treatments for you and we will forward all invoices to your insurance adjuster. All you need to bring to your first visit are your case number, proof of your pre-approved 21 visits and your insurance adjuster's e-mail and contact information. 

Insurance Direct Billing and Policy

 

We direct bill over 22 insurance companies:

- Sun Life, Manulife, Great-West Life, Cowan, Industrial Alliance, Standard Life, Dejardins, Chambers of Commerce, Johnson Inc., Maximum Benefit, Johnston Group Inc., CINUP, First Canadian, GroupHEALTH, GroupSource, Manion

Our Direct Billing Policy:

-A Direct Billing Form MUST be filled out and signed in order for us to direct bill on your behalf. 

-All visits performed by our Naturopathic Doctor will be billed as a "Naturopathic Visit".

-All visits performed by our Acupuncturists will be billed as an "Acupuncture Visit". For example, if you see an Acupuncturist for a Microneedling treatment, that visit will be billed as an Acupuncture visit to your insurance.

-All visits performed by our Massage Therapists will be billed as a "Massage Visit".

-There are no exceptions to the above way to billing. We also do not back-date receipts, split up visits into small visits or use any other members of the family's insurance if your insurance has been maxed out. Please verify with your insurance provider that you are covered for such treatments before you book a specific treatment.

-Patients are always responsible for paying the full treatment cost even if they thought they were covered by their insurance company, if their insurance got declined, maxed out, or terminated.

-Insurance submissions that come back as Pending/for Review: if we do not get an immediate answer from your insurance company, we will have to collect the full amount of the visit and re-submit your claim to be payable to Insured Member. Any amounts covered by your insurance will be paid directly to you in 5-7 business days. 

-We do not direct bill to Seconday Insurance. If there's a co-pay amount, we will collect that amount up-front from you and provide a receipt for you to submit to your secondary insurance company yourself.

We accept VISA, Mastercard, AMEX, Debit, Cash and Essence Wellness Clinic Gift Cards.

Why is there a separate Visit Fee and Supplies Fee?

 

In order for us to direct bill to your insurance company, we must separate the visit fee from the supplies fee. The VISIT FEE portion of the treatment will be direct billed to your insurance and we will let you know how much of that is covered. The SUPPLIES FEE is an out-of-pocket fee that you must pay after each visit, regardless if we have to wait to hear back from your insurance company or not. The supplies fee covers the cost of the supplies used during certain treatments and cannot be directly billed to your insurance company.
