The Alberta government provides funds to Alberta Health Services to provide rehabilitation services, which include:
- Community physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Respiratory therapy
- Speech-language pathology
Who is eligible to receive these services?
All Alberta residents with Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan coverage are eligible to receive these services, except when the care is provided by the Workers’ Compensation Board, or when the client is in a long-term care facility or is receiving home care services.
Eligibility is determined by the professional providing the service. Referral by a physician does not determine eligibility for services.
