We offer personalized and hands-on treatment to suit your specific condition. Premier Care is a rehabilitation clinic that has helped hundreds of MVA (Motor Vehicle Accident) and WSIB (Workplace Safety Insurance Board) patients recover from their complications. In this article, we discuss how you can take advantage of our professional services and learn more about how you can claim your insurance with us!

 

Who will pay for my treatment if I was injured at work?

The Workplace Safety Insurance Board (WSIB) is a government insurance program delegated to assist those individuals that have suffered a workplace injury. Anyone who was injured at work must file a claim with the WSIB, and once accepted, a claim number will be issued allowing you to receive treatment at our clinic. Injuries may include, but are not limited to;

  • Disablements (injuries that develop over time)
  • Hearing loss
  • Occupational diseases
  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Crashes and collisions
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Musculoskeletal strains and pulls

 

What defines a Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA)?

An MVA is an incident where the main cause of injury is the legal use or operation of a motor vehicle. These include:

  • Getting hurt while filling gas in a vehicle
  • Vehicle to vehicle collision
  • Attaching a trailer to your vehicle
  • Scraping ice off the windshield

When basic requirements are fulfilled, you will be most likely to receive assistance under the Accident Benefits portion of your Ontario Automobile Insurance Company.

 

What MVA and WSIB conditions do we treat?

Whether your MVA or workplace injury has taken place a few days ago, or it has been over a year since your accident, our team of experts has the necessary skills and knowledge to improve your quality of life. Here are some of the injuries we treat:

  • Whiplash 
  • Acute to chronic neck pain
  • Concussions
  • Migraines and frequent headaches
  • Strains and sprains
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Stiff upper and lower backs
  • Muscle tears and Tendinitis

 

What can you expect from a session with our clinic?

Premier Care Physiotherapy has a multidisciplinary approach to your body’s journey to function at its highest potential. Your treatment will start with a comprehensive assessment to identify all the issues related to your circumstance. After we fully understand your symptoms and areas of discomfort, we create a treatment plan to address them all. Collaboratively working with your body, we will advise you on the best course of action, the services needed to remedy your conditions and the number of treatments you will require for noticeable changes.

 

What type of assistance can I obtain from my insurance company?

Depending on your individual insurance company, you may be able to get reimbursed for loss of wages and help you pay for the necessary physical and mental assistance required to help you get better. At Premier Care Physiotherapy, we work with most insurance companies and dedicate ourselves to continually provide exceptional physiotherapy services for all those individuals that have suffered from injuries.

There are several key benefits that can cover you if you meet the respective requirements. This includes, but is not limited to;

  • Replacement for income
  • Medical and rehabilitation benefits
  • Benefits for caregivers
  • Attendant care benefits

 

My insurance plan does not cover my MVA treatment – what are my next steps?

We are committed to working with each patient’s unique financial situation. If you are covered by insurance we might/should be able to bill the insurance company directly. Please check with us.

For patients that are not insured, we accept Visa, Mastercard, debit, cheque or cash.
