Office and Web Policies
Many insurance companies provide coverage for treatment. Due to the Health Profession’s Personal Privacy Act we are unable to access any specific information from your extended health insurance company regarding your coverage. Your policy is between you, the subscriber, and your insurer. It is your responsibility to know the parameters of your coverage, such as annual maximums, frequencies, renewal dates, and any other limitations.
We also extend the option of direct billing (also called assignment) for your convenience. However, a valid credit card must be on file and your insurance company must accept this service. The insurers that we can direct bill to are as follows: Alberta Blue Cross, Chambers of Commerce Group Insurance, CINUP, Cowan, Desjardins Insurance, First Canadian, Great-West Life, Green Shield, Industrial Alliance, Johnson Inc., Johnston Group Inc., Manulife Financial, Maximum Benefit, SSQ Financial Group, and Sunlife Financial.
Motor Vehicle Accident Care
Whiplash injury, sprains and strains from a motor vehicle accident can result in pain, soft tissue damage and spinal dysfunction. If left untreated, early joint degeneration can occur. We offer a wide range of therapies, all conveniently provided by our therapists in one of our two Calgary locations.
Provide us with the particulars of your auto insurer and we are able to bill them directly for your treatment. Therapy covered by your insurer include chiropractic, therapeutic massage, acupuncture, spinal decompression therapy, active release technique, Graston therapy, shockwave and exercise therapy.
We value your time, and we ask that you value ours. Your appointment is valuable time that the doctor has reserved specifically for you. Due to a continuous high demand for appointment during prime times, we require a minimum of 24 hours notice per appointment should you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment. If insufficient notice is given, a missed appointment fee may be charged to you, or we may require you to prepay to reserve future appointments.
Although we will make every effort to contact you prior to any appointment, it is ultimately your responsibility to ensure that you will be at your appointment, unless other arrangements have been made in advance with our office. As a courtesy, we send out e-mail confirmations the day prior to your appointment.
