You don’t need a referral to make an appointment at Russett Rehabilitation. Many local physicians do refer patients to us for rehabilitation services after injury, surgery or as part of ongoing pain management for chronic long-term conditions. You may need a referral for coverage through your extended health benefits plan. Please contact your benefit plan for requirements.
Yes, we can direct bill for most plans. You will be required to pay for your session at each visit and you will be reimbursed via direct deposit or cheque, depending however you have set that up with your benefit company.
Please be aware that every extended health plan is different. We ask that you confirm with your benefit company (Sunlife, Manulife, Blue Cross, etc) as to:
What services are covered
How much they will cover
Whether a physician referral is required
Please be aware that there are a few extended health companies where direct billing is unavailable. You can contact the clinic to confirm if you have a plan that can be direct billed.
