Do I need a referral from my doctor?
No, a referral is not needed to make an appointment with our Foot Care Nurses. Although some clients are referred to Alberta Foot Care by their family physician or health care provider, it is not a requirement to become a client here. Please note that some insurance plans do require a physician referral to meet their reimbursement requirements.
Will Blue Cross, Veteran Affairs or my private insurance company cover these services?
Most extended health care plans do offer partial or full coverage of many foot care services. As all insurance plans are different, we advise you to contact your insurance company to obtain information on your own specific coverage.
