Funding

OHIP

Funding options available under OHIP are subject to periodic change. At the present time OHIP pays for physiotherapy (see conditions below) but must be performed at an OHIP designated clinic such as those provided by Achieva Health. Residents in Long Term Care and Retirement Homes might also be able to access OHIP funded physiotherapy services through Achieva Health (see conditions below). OHIP does not currently provide coverage for chiropractic care, massage therapy, nutritional counselling or massage therapy but this may change in the future.

Achieva Health Clinics
Patients may qualify to access publicly funded physiotherapy treatments paid by OHIP provided they meet the following requirements:

  • You must have a physicians referral deeming physiotherapy as medically necessary.
  • Be 19 years of age or younger or 65 years of age or older.
  • Are receiving benefits under the Ontario Disability Support Program or Family Works.
  • Have stayed overnight in hospital for a condition that now requires physiotherapy treatment ( joint replacement surgery, acute pain, i.e. neck or back pain).

Please note that OHIP does not cover the cost of assessment or re-assessment, so a minimal assessment and/or re-assessment fee is charged to the patient.

Long Term Care and Retirement Homes
Residents in LTC and Retirement Homes may qualify to access OHIP funded physiotherapy services through Achieva Health provided they meet the following conditions:

  • The resident must have a referral either from a physician or nurse in charge.
  • Be 65 years of age or older.
  • Have been overnight in hospital for a condition that now requires physiotherapy treatment.
