Who covers the cost of Occupational Therapy Services?
Your family doctor can refer you to an occupational therapist for occupational therapy services covered under your provincial medical plan. These occupational therapists usually work in hospitals or government funded rehabilitation centers and home care programmes.

If you have extended health care benefit insurance, check with your insurance company to see if they offer occupational therapy as an extended health care benefit.

If you have a work-related illness or injury, occupational therapy services may be provided upon referral, by Workers Compensation.

If you have an illness or injury from a motor vehicle accident, occupational therapy services may be covered under your auto insurance plan.

If you are receiving long term disability income from an insurance programme, your programme may cover occupational therapy services.
