How Does Direct Billing Work at Our Physiotherapy Clinic?
With your permission, We bill via the Telus Health Portal submits your healthcare claim directly to your insurance provider while you receive your Physiotherapy treatment. Your claim is adjudicated online and a claim response issued. No longer do you have to deal with submitting paperwork; paying out-of-pocket; or waiting for reimbursement.
Depending on your Extended Healthcare coverage, there may be a co-payment portion. For example, if your plan covers 80% of the cost of a Physiotherapy treatment, you will pay the outstanding balance of 20% at the end of your treatment. We accept all major credit cards, debit or cash.
If your Extended Healthcare Plan does not allow benefit assignment, we will still submit the claim for you and you will be reimbursed under the terms and conditions of your Extended Healthcare Plan.
