How long do appointments last?

If it's your first time at Neurocore, or if you have previously been a patient at the clinic and are returning from after a long break from treatment or with a different condition, we'll book you in for an initial assessment. All initial assessments are 45 minutes in length. This allows the therapist time to check your medical history, examine you and start some treatment. After your initial assessment, follow-up treatment times vary between 30-60 minutes. Appointment duration also depends on the professional you are seeing and your goals.

We may need to collaborate with your doctor regarding your condition and would like to maintain open communication early on. Please be aware that some insurance companies require evidence of a doctor's referral before they agree to cover the cost of your appointment.

Is Private Physiotherapy covered by OHIP?

No. Private physiotherapy is not covered by OHIP. However, many insurance companies have their specific policies on the amount they will cover. Insurance plans and coverage vary, so please be sure to check with your insurance in advance. Please note the following:
- If you have private health insurance coverage and are not seeking a health professional for a traumatic injury, we kindly request that you submit your insurance claims independently.
- If you have been traumatically injured (eg. Motor Vehicle Accidents), we will complete the appropriate paperwork and work around the number of sessions your insurance approves.
- If you do not have private insurance coverage, we kindly request that you self-pay after each session.
