  • your physiotherapist may request other appointments if you are low-income (there are income assessment forms at the clinics)
  • if you don’t have coverage through ACPT, you might have coverage through your benefits or insurance plan
  • if you were hurt at work, your treatments may be covered by WCB
  • if you were hurt in a motor vehicle collision, your insurance may cover your treatments
