What can I expect?

You can expect that the Physiotherapist will do a detailed history, observe how you move, perform physical measurements and share the assessment findings with you. In order for the Physiotherapist to see how your body moves and properly assess the area to be injured you may want to bring comfortable clothing such as a tank top or shorts to the assessment.

You can expect to learn what brought you into the clinic and how you can change the things needed to feel better. You can expect that you may have homework and may need to incorporate some changes into your lifestyle to facilitate the changes needed to succeed.

You can expect to feel welcomed and comfortable in our clinic and start to find some symptom relief.

Do I need a Doctor’s referral to see you?

You do not need a referral from your Doctor or Nurse Practitioner prior to seeing us. Physiotherapists are Primary Health Care Providers. Very few insurance companies will still require a referral to be reimbursed for your treatment. We recommend calling your insurance provider prior to your visit for clarification if needed.

Is Physiotherapy covered under Medicare?

No. Private physiotherapy in New Brunswick is not covered by Medicare, however you do have coverage under Medicare at the hospital and we work with their staff to have carry-over if needed. We all want what is best for our clients.

What are the costs?

Our assessment fee is $85. This is for an hour and may consist of some treatment but may also consist of some documentation time. Follow up visits are $70 for 30 minutes and $85 for an hour. Your Physiotherapist will discuss the need for follow up after your assessment. Typically it can take up to 4 or 5 visits to see changes that are required to resolve issues that brought you into the clinic.

These costs are covered by most private insurance plans. We direct bill for many of these plans and accept cash, cheque, Interac, Visa, Mastercard, and American Express.

We accept claims from Motor Vehicle Accident Claims. We ask you bring your adjuster and insurance information prior to your assessment time or arrive 10-15 minutes early to fill out the appropriate paperwork.

We are now certified to accept WorkSafe NB claims once they are authorized. You are able to use your private insurance while your claim is under review.

There are fees for any reports requested.

What is your Cancellation Policy?

If you book an appointment and are unable to attend please give us as much notice as possible and we will gladly reschedule free of charge. If you book an appointment and do not attend (no show) there is an applicable fee. This may also apply to cancellations with short notice. This will be half the cost of your scheduled appointment fee: $37.50 for Assessments and full hour follow up sessions and $30 for 30 minute sessions. This fee will not be billed to your insurance and we ask that you pay in person prior to rebooking. If a client has not shown for 3 consecutive appointment times we reserve the right to not re-book as we have clients that are waiting to fill those spots.

What else is happening at Bone Physiotherapy & Wellness?

We run a Seniors Exercise Class that runs quarterly. We assess one on one each person prior to and after our 10 week program that consists of a group exercise class. The re-assessment will have objective measures that tell the client how much they have improved their strength, balance and gait. The one on one assessments can be billed to your insurance plan but our classes are $120 per quarter. We have found it to be a great gift for your favorite senior, the gift that keeps on giving.

We offer ergonomic and consulting services for clients at a discounted rate and for companies on request.

We can also special order custom and non-custom knee braces as well as other non-custom braces if deemed necessary by your therapist, saving you time and money traveling or ordering online for purchase.
