Our Policies and Direct Billing

*WE ARE A 100% NON SEXUAL, CERTIFIED, EXPERIENCED  THAI TRADITIONAL MEDICINE AND MASSAGE PRACTITIONERS,REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPY CLINIC.

Our Covid-19 Response

The safety and comfort of our employees and patients are of the utmost importance to us. And to protect patients and staff and follow public health orders, we ask our clients and staff to follow the following guideline.

Client Responsibilities:

  1. The screening will be conducted either at the time you book your appointment by e-mail or at the time you arrive for your appointment. It is your responsibility to answer truthfully about any symptoms you may be experiencing.
  2. We ask that you arrive no more than 5 minutes before your appointment time to help us maintain social distancing.
  3. Hand sanitizer is provided in strategic locations to help maintain proper hand hygiene. You are required to follow proper hand hygiene upon entering the clinic before you see the therapist.
  4. Maintain 2 meters distance at all times from people who are not from your household.
  5. Please refrain from bringing people who are not scheduled for appointments at the same time as you whenever possible. We are required to screen everyone who walks into the clinic, and this added delay will cause a slowdown to operations.
  6. Effective August 1, 2020, wearing a mask is mandatory. Due to city bylaw, all patrons, including patients and employees are now required to wear masks until further notice. In case you don’t have a mask upon entering the clinic, a mask will be provided. 

Our Responsibilities & Measures

  1. We will screen patients at the time of their appointment if they haven’t already done it online. Furthermore, we will also screen the staff and therapists on a daily basis with the same measures.
  2. We provide essential hand hygiene products necessary. All members of the staff will also follow proper hand hygiene.
  3. For our safety, staff and therapists will wear masks throughout the duration of the pandemic as social distancing in those roles is more difficult.
  4. Common areas and surfaces will be regularly disinfected. Every room is sanitized and disinfected between each client.
  5. Therapists will change their uniforms after every session to prevent cross-contamination.

We have changed how we schedule to keep minimal people in the waiting room.

Do you direct bill to insurance companies?

Yes, We do! and Direct billing is a privilege not a right. Every plan is different, so please make sure that your plan allows direct billing, and that you are aware of the extent of your coverage.

Registered Massage Therapy and Manual Osteopathy all designated under the paramedical section.Services provided are covered by most Extended Health Care plans and all patients can be provided with the appropriate receipts for submission to their respective insurance company.

Some insurance companies may allow for direct billing or online billing depending on your plan options.

Please note: that this depends on your practitioners, so please let us know which insurance company you have benefits with so we can ensure direct billing.

Direct billing for some insurance plans may not be available on weekends.

Desjardins Insurance allows us to submit claims, but payment only goes directly to the client.  Alternative means of payment are required to cover the balance of the treatment.

For all insurances, please be prepared to use an alternate form of payment in the case of technical difficulties. Thank you for your understanding.

  • If the claim does not approve online or pending,we can submit the claim pay to Insured Member for you to get reimbursed  or we will provide the receipt to you .

  • If your primary plan only covers part of the treatment fee, you have to pay us the remaining balance and we will print you a receipt.

  • However, in the event that we cannot submit the claim for you, we will assist you in any way possible to ensure you get reimbursed.

  • Please be prepared to pay for your visits in the event that your insurance provider will not cover your treatments. We are unable to provide you with a credit to be paid for at a later date.
