Medical care is an expensive commodity in our society and the cost is forever increasing, making this service out of reach for many Canadians. Benefits plans were set up to subsidize these costs, making various elements of health care accessible to many people. Payment for treatments are due at the time the service provided. A receipt with the registration number will be given at the time of payment. It is the client’s responsibility to keep track of your plan specifics, submissions for reimbursement and education regarding your extended health insurance coverage. We will do our best to accommodate clients without insurance or benefit coverage, allowing for a payment plan that is appropriate for both parties. This would be conditional upon the agreement of both parties. Fees are liable to change without notice.
