Please arrive 15 minutes early to complete your initial visit paperwork, unless you have downloaded the appropriate forms from the forms section in advance from the website and completed them prior to your first appointment. We kindly ask to bring the completed forms with you to your initial visit and arrive about 5 minutes early.
We respectfully request that you give a full 24 hours notice if you must cancel an appointment. This is to provide an opportunity for other patients and clients to book during that time slot. We reserve the right to charge for missed or cancelled appointments without sufficient notice.
Most extended health care plans cover chiropractic, registered massage therapy, acupuncture, custom foot orthotics and registered kinesiology. If you have a dental plan, there is a good possibility that you have coverage for most of the services offered at KWFC. Please check your individual policy for more information.
All policies differ in coverage amounts and certain policies require a physician prescription prior to your massage therapy or kinesiology treatment to be eligible to claim the amount back through your policy.
Your insurance provider may request a deductible to be paid to them prior to treatment. All plans vary in coverage for example, if 80% of your Massage Therapy treatment is covered by your Insurance Provider, then you will be required to pay 20%. Please be aware of your personal insurance plan and its requirements as they may change.
Payment for services is expected at the time of each visit and receipts/statements will be issued upon request.
Many extended health care insurance companies are now allowing you to register for online claim submissions. Your reimbursement for services may only be a click away, and many provide you reimbursement by direct deposit in a matter of days.
For your convenience, we have provided links to common insurance companies registration for online claims submission. We have also provided some other common insurance company standard paper claim forms in the form section. You can print the appropriate form, fill it out and submit it to your provider for the appropriate refund.

Important Coverage Information
We direct bill to your auto insurance plan. We are registered FSCO service provides, and this enables us to direct bill you auto insurance plan for motor vehicle accident approved treatment.
If you do not have any extended health care (EHC) benefits which cover your treatment, and your treatment plan is approved, we will directly bill the auto accident insurance company on your behalf.
In Ontario, if you have EHC benefits that cover some or all of your treatment related to your motor vehicle accident claim, the auto insurance company requires that your claim be billed through your EHC plan first. you would pay the clinic directly for services, and submit for reimbursement to your EHC provider, until your ECH benefits have been used up to the fiscal or calendar year. Please bring us in a copy of your EHC benefits statement showing that you have maximized your benefits for the calendar or fiscal year, as we need to send a copy to the auto insurance company.
Any remaining balances for service are submitted to your auto insurer and will be direct billed on our behalf.
We bill directly to WSIB for you.
WSIB provides coverage for chiropractic, registered massage therapy and registered kinesiology for workers injured on the job.
Once all of the forms have been submitted to WSIB by both the injured worker and the health care professional, there is often a period of waiting for the claim to be approved by WSIB.
Your options for treatment during this time, can be to wait to start treatment until the claim has been approved. As this will delay your recovery, we often recommend that you pay for your treatment yourself and start care right away. Once the claim has been approved, we will refund you your out of pocket expense and bill WSIB directly for treatment, reports and form completion as required. (Please note, you cannot submit the out of pocket expenses to your EHC provider unless your WSIB claim is denied as it would constitute double billing.)
Please complete the WSIB forms, found in the forms sections and bring the information to your first appointment. If you don’t have a printer, please review the required information and bring the information with you in order to complete the forms at KWFC.
If WSIB give you any forms for us to complete on your behalf, such as a FAF (functional abilities form) please bring the paperwork to KWFC. This information is only sent to you, as the injured worker, claimant, not to the clinic, as we are considered a third party. Your co-operation is appreciated.
