Motor Vehicle Accident
What is Covered?
Your auto insurance covers you for a minimum of 10 chiropractic treatments for minor injuries under the Alberta diagnostic treatment protocols regulation.
Chiropractic treatment for minor injuries is billed directly to your insurance company. You do not have to submit receipts for reimbursement. Make sure you tell your chiropractor that you were injured in a car accident so they will fill out the forms to have your treatment costs covered.
Through a different automobile insurance program, every Albertan is entitled to $1000 of chiropractic care coverage for motor vehicle accident injuries (under Section B).
How do I receive treatment?
Within 10 days of the collision:
- File an injury accident report with the police.
- Call our office to schedule an examination and treatment. If your injury is considered minor (i.e. sprain, strain or minor whiplash injury), you do not need authorization from your insurer. You may begin treatment immediately and your insurance company will be billed directly.
- File the appropriate forms with your insurer. Forms are available from our office, your insurer or insurance broker.
