How Long do Osteopathic Treatments Last?
The initial treatment/evaluation tends to last an hour. Subsequent treatments will vary but often become half-hour sessions or less as the ailment begins to resolve.
Is the Cost Covered by Provincial or Private Insurance?
Most extended health insurance policies cover osteopathic medicine and massage therapy. Please check with your health care provider to make sure. OHIP does not provide coverage.
You will be issued a receipt and all receipts are eligible for tax deductions if you do not have private insurance. If your private insurance company does not cover 100% of the fees, the difference can be claimed on your income tax return. It is your insurance company’s responsibility to issue a statement of fees not covered.
Do I Need a Prescription to Receive Treatment?
A doctor’s prescription is not necessary unless required by your insurance company. It’s wise to check with your insurance company in advance of making your appointment.
