What are Uninsured Services?
These are for services not covered by Alberta Health Care. Fees for uninsured services are billable directly to the patient. These services are billable because they involve physician and staff time to complete them. The fees collected by 4th Street Clinic are within the current Alberta Medical Association (AMA) Uninsured Services guidelines.
Here is a direct link to information regarding uninsured services: Uninsured Services Information.
The AMA provides Doctors and Clinics with a schedule of suggested form fees. There may be a surcharge for complex forms that require additional time to complete, which you will be informed about ahead of time.
Payment will be expected before release of the forms, this can be made over the phone by credit card (call us at (403) 640.4320) or paid in the office by cash/debit/credit.
*Free means covered by Alberta Health Services.
** PLEASE NOTE It helps enormously if people read through all forms, complete and sign their portion and ensure the physician has all the relevant information before forwarding to the office. Examples include information requested such as last date at work, current level of functioning, dates of visits to physio / counselling etc. This is because some of this information may not be known by your physician. If the office has to call you for further information required to complete the form, then there will be an added surcharge due to the increased time and effort required.
For disability tax credits, please review the form yourself, understand the high threshold required to qualify and please understand we can only sign them if you truly meet these requirements. These are not related to having a specific diagnosis (ie arthritis), but the specifics of what you are unable to do in day to day activities (disability). For example how far can you walk, manage with stairs, use of walker etc.
