Yearly Health Insurance: Use it or lose it

If you have not used your yearly extended health benefits, our Ottawa physiotherapists can customize a pro-active plan for you.

We’re coming near the end of the year, and for many individual’s extended health benefits insurance renewal date is December 31st.   Do you take advantage of allied health services covered under your plan?  Considering you are paying into these health benefit plans, often automatically withdrawn from your pay cheque, you should know your plan and coverage, and use it!

Many recognize and have experienced physiotherapy and massage therapy services, when injured or in pain, but do you know what role we plan in PREVENTION, EDUCATION, WELLNESS. As the saying goes … "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".

Consider some of our pro-active service options, as you evaluate your health benefit plan coverage and how to maximize on the money already spent!
