At Essential Chiropractic, we work directly with leading insurance plans such as Blue Cross, Great West Life, Desjardins and others, billing them for limited coverage for chiropractic examination and treatments.
Newfoundland and Labrador's Workplace Health, Safety & Compensation Commission (WHSCC) provides chiropractic treatment for injured workers. Workers with injuries sustained within a 90-day period can begin treatment without pre-approval from WHSCC. Workers with injuries that are more than 90 days old can be assessed by a chiropractor, but approval must be obtained from WHSCC before
Currently, there is no MCP coverage for chiropractic treatments, although X-rays ordered by your chiropractor are taken at local hospitals and covered by MCP.
Chiropractors are licensed as primary care providers in Newfoundland and Labrador, and while we work closely with your family doctor to offer you the best possible care, you do not need a referral in order to see us.
