Is there a cost?
NO DIRECT COSTS to patients. Rapid Access Sport Injury Clinic visits, with a physician, are covered by Alberta Health Care.
Are there any other costs?
Your physician may prescribe therapy, bracing or other treatment services that are not covered by Alberta Health Care, but are often covered by extended health benefit plans.
Innovative Sport Medicine offers physiotherapy, bracing, athletic therapy, chiropractic and massage services, but patients are free to go to any facility of their choice for any prescribed treatment. All SCRHL players are covered by CARHA insurance, so the insurance would help cover for the the aforementioned services.
