13 Sep Is Physiotherapy in Ontario covered by insurance or OHIP?
Physiotherapy in Ottawa and in Ontario is covered by most extended health plans. However in certain circumstances, such as if the patient is a minor or a senior, or if they were injured on the job or in a car accident, then they would be covered by OHIP, WSIB, or the respective car insurance company. One often unknown fact is that any passenger or pedestrian involved in a car accident will be covered for treatment, regardless of age or if they have car insurance. If you are unsure if your injury is covered, first consult your family doctor as they are the ones that can start your WSIB and OHIP referral.
