Parkland Rehabilitation is an accredited Alberta Health Services provider.  As an Albertan you are entitled to an AHS funded assessment, however, as our funding is capped there may be wait times for these assessments.  Your Physical Therapist will assign you a determination of need score (at the time of your initial assessment), which will determine your eligibility for funded treatment.  Under our general cap, if you qualify, you will be covered for 2 more visits after the assessment.

If you have a surgery, and are assessed by a Physical Therapist within 56 days from the time of your surgery, you may qualify for another 6 treatments after your assessment. 

If you have had a fracture and have had the affected area in an immobilization device (cast/sling/tensor), and are assessed within 14 days of this immobilization device removed, you may qualify for another 6 treatments after the initial assessment. 

Patients who are considered to have a low income may qualify for another 6 treatments after the initial assessment.  To qualify for this funding a patient must be in a government subsidy program, or be experiencing temporary financial hardship, which will be outlined for you when registering at the clinic for the initial assessment.

You may opt out of an AHS assessment and choose to use personal benefits or pay privately to get the first available assessment rather than waiting for one funded through AHS.

Unfortunately, work place accidents can happen!  So, when they do, it is important that you take the following steps so that you can open a WCB claim.


  1. Inform you employer of your injury and ensure that a claim is filed with WCB.

  2. See your Physician to clear any medical problems that need immediate attention, and so that they may also submit the appropriate paper work to WCB.

  3. See your Physical Therapist.  A patient may may come in for an assessment without a referral; however, the patient must have a Doctor's referral within five days of assessment for claims processing.

If the patient's claim is not accepted, the individual will  be personally responsible for covering the cost of treatment rendered, with the exception of the cost of the Assessment.

Individuals involved in a motor  vehicle accident have direct access to Physical Therapy services without a Doctor's referral.  

  1. Inform your insurance provider that you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident.

  2. Complete an AB-1form to submit to your insurance company.  The AB-1 form must be completed and sent to your auto insurance adjustor within 10 business days from the accident for proper claims processing. 

  3. Your Physiotherapist will be required to fill out an AB-2 form after they have assessed your injuries.  This assessment report outlines the severity of your injuries and a treatment plan for your care.  

The majority of those injured will qualify for 10-21 treatments, within the first 90 days following the accident. This may be billed directly to your auto insurance company.

However, there are certain instances in which an individual may not qualify for protocol treatments (fractures, injury to neurological structures, etc.).  For these individuals, the cost of treatment will go through extended benefits.  If you have no benefits/your benefits only cover a portion of treatment/or your benefits have already been exhausted, then the remainder of treatment cost can be submitted to the auto insurance provider.

At Parkland Rehabilitation, we understand how physically demanding the work of a Veteran, National Defence employee or RCMP member can be. If you are covered under the Blue Cross Medavie insurance plan under Veterans Affairs Canada or as an RCMP or National Defense employee we can directly invoice physiotherapy services to Blue Cross on your behalf and handle the payments for your plan of care. Please know that the amount of coverage you receive depends on your benefit plan and, in some cases, your injury. Here at Parkland Rehabilitation, we are happy to help you determine the amount of coverage you’ll receive for treatments. This will enable you to focus on your rehabilitation and feeling your best.
