Spine Assessment Fee
Spine Assessment Fee
There is a fee of $200.00 CAD charged to the patient for the initial appointment. The assessment is only covered in part by your Provincial Health Insurance (i.e. Alberta Health). The assessment is performed with a physiotherapist or chiropractor as part of the assessment team. Physiotherapy and Chiropractic assessments are uninsured services through Alberta Health. The fee you are required to pay is for uninsured services only. It is the responsibility of the patient to cover the cost of all uninsured services.
Our surgeons accept direct referrals from community based physicians and access to a surgeon is not limited to only those that pay the fee. However, the direct route may take up to 24 months for a patient to be seen in consult unless the surgeon is confident that this is an urgent surgical matter. Approximately 80% of patients referred directly to a surgeon from their family physician are deemed non-surgical. The result is a significant delay in access to spine care for patients that are truly surgical and frustration for non-surgical patients that have waited long periods with little or no outcome for their condition.
Individual surgeons have the right decline direct referrals from time to time in an attempt to manage their wait lists. A surgeon may also decline a referral if there is no clear indication that the patient will benefit from surgical treatment.
The triage and assessment process is in place to assist non-surgical patients with obtaining timely treatment recommendations and access to the appropriate care pathway. The process also serves to determine urgency of surgical patients so that care is not delayed for patients with urgent conditions.
Invoices for uninsured services will be provided and you may submit them to your extended healthcare plan. Payments can be made by: Credit Card or Debit; we do not accept personal cheques.
All refunds are subject to a $20 administration & processing fee. No refunds will be made after 90 days of your initial Payment.
