Back & Body Health is a Calgary MVA clinic providing treatment for motor vehicle accident injuries such as sprains, strains and whiplash injuries.
Under Alberta’s auto insurance system, if you are injured in a motor vehicle collision, you provided access to early car accident treatment in order to recover quickly.
Within 10 days of the collision you MUST:
- Seek treatment from a Primary Health Care Provider. If your injury is a sprain, strain or minor whiplash injury, your chiropractor will not need authorization from your insurer for the first 12 weeks of treatment and the chiropractic clinic will bill the insurer directly. For other injuries not covered by Alberta Health Care Insurance, you will be reimbursed for eligible expenses from your private health care plan and/or your Section B benefits from your automobile insurer
- File the appropriate forms with your insurer if you have a minor injury. (For other injuries, you have 30 days.) The forms can be downloaded here and are available at Back & Body Health, your insurer or insurance broker, at www.autoinsurance.gov.ab.ca. Your insurer will respond within five days.
- File an injury report with the Calgary Police Service.
