Can you direct bill my insurance if I am not 100% covered in my benefits?
You are still eligible for direct billing even if only a percentage of your insurance will cover the costs. The remainder of the remaining balance will be paid by you at the end of your visit.
What if my insurance company or union is not on the list?
If you do not see your insurance company or union in our list, thou shall not worry. We are working on including more insurance companies in our system. For this time, we will provide you official receipt that you can send to your insurance company or union.
Do I need a physician's referral?

Can you check how much I have left or if what my insurance covers?
We only submit claims to your insurer thereby we do not have access to your insurance policy. Please contact your insurer or log-in to your insurer's member portal to access your insurance policy.
a) Please contact your insurance company if you have any questions or concerns regarding your coverage.
b) Insurance direct billing is a privilege that is offered through third party entities such as Telus Health eClaims and ProviderConnect.

On the rare occasions when insurance systems or internet services experience a down-time, insurance companies reject the claim or benefits are maxed out or not fully covered where you need to pay a remaining balance, clients will be responsible for the full payment of any massage services received, and insurance receipts will be issued for submission to their insurance providers.
c) For CINUP clients under ACDEN Bee Clean, if you haven't submitted a massage claim with prescription to your insurance this benefit year, you will have to submit manually with your prescription if the direct bill claim does not go through. Usually, CINUP under ACDEN will only allow direct billing after the client has submitted a massage prescription.
For Manual Osteopathic Therapy Services, it is covered by most insurance companies but it is the patient's responsibility to know their policies.
