You will then be seen by your registered health care professional who will complete a thorough evaluation of your conditions/injury and educate you on the findings. The session will end with a treatment that will be based on your injury. Your health care provider will then discuss with you recommendations for future sessions.

Unfortunately physiotherapy is no longer covered under OHIP, except for specific circumstances. However, Pro Care Physiotherapy & Athletes Injury Center offers services, which are covered by most extended health care plans. You can contact your extended health care insurance to determine your level of coverage.
At this time some extended health insurance companies will allow direct billing from physiotherapy clinics. Our clinic is equipped to offer this service to our patients. If your insurance company and policy allows physiotherapy clinics to bill them directly then we can offer this service to you. If your policy or insurance company does not allow this, then we take payment upon each visit and provide you with an official receipt, which you can claim through your insurance company.
Please contact us or speak with the front desk upon your first visit if you require more details or have any questions concerning direct billing. Someone will be happy to help you.
