How do you direct bill on my extended health benefits?
With your permission, Cambridge Physiotherapy submits your claim using an online portal for the services you receive. You provide your insurance policy number and member ID. Your Portal gives us an idea of the amount your plan covers. You might have to pay the balance, depending on your coverage.
(Note: Most extended benefit coverage offers direct billing, but not all.)
How much do I need to pay?
You pay the balance of your visit fee after your insurance plan pays what it covers. If your insurance covers 100% of your costs, then you don’t pay anything. If your insurance covers 80% of the visit, then you pay the other 20%.
What treatments can be direct billed?
All physiotherapy and massage services.
Is a doctor’s referral needed for physiotherapy or massage therapy?
Yes and no. In Ontario, you have direct access to physiotherapy and massage services without a referral from a doctor. However, some insurance requires a referral, so check your coverage before your visit.
What if I have coverage under more than one insurance plan? Do you coordinate benefits?
The Portal allows only one direct billed insurance plan. So, you pay the balance to the clinic, we give you itemized receipts, and you submit those for reimbursement under your other insurance policy.
Can I get a receipt?
Yes. You get a receipt automatically for any portion you pay to the clinic. For direct billing, you can get a copy of the statement submitted to the Portal.
What happens if my insurance company doesn’t process my bill?
Simply pay us and get reimbursed from your insurance company. We accept e-transfer, Visa, MasterCard, Debit or cash. You will get a receipt to submit to your insurance company.
