It’s important to know that even the mildest accidents can lead to injuries, and that these injuries may not show symptoms right away but can lead to significant pain, discomfort, and loss of function at later times.
In Alberta, you can start your physiotherapy treatment even before you see your family doctor, and it is very likely that your treatment will be covered by your car insurance. All persons involved in an accident, both drivers and passengers, are eligible for treatment under the Motor Vehicle Act.
At MOVE TO MOVE, our therapists have a deep knowledge of the MVA injuries and most effective treatments for resolving them.
During your first visit you will be assessed and treated, and the proper reporting will be sent to your insurance company. Treatments for MVA are billed directly to your insurance company. Your therapist will communicate with your claims officer to ensure you get the treatments you need to recover fully.
MOVE TO MOVE does not have a contract with Alberta Health Services nor with the Workers Compensation Board (WCB). Therefore, your treatments cannot be paid for by either.
