Upon completion of assessment your claim will either be deemed to be within or outside of Alberta Diagnostic Treatment Protocols (DTPR).
If you are covered by DTPR, your therapist will discuss the number of treatments you’ll be authorized for and your insurer will be billed directly for your treatments. Authorization expires 90 days after the motor vehicle accident unless the insurer approves use of the DTPR beyond 90 days. Typically, you’ll qualify for between 10 and 21 treatments.
If you are not covered under DTPR (Section B), the priority of payment specifies that an insurer is the second payer after both extended health benefits (e.g. Blue Cross or similar employee benefit plans with health spending accounts) and Alberta Health Care Insurance. The number of treatments are determined on a case by case basis.
