Are You Taking Full Advantage of Your Extended Healthcare Benefits?

After a hard day’s work, it’s nice to kick back and cozy up with a light read. We have just the recommendation. It’s a non-fiction, health and wellness, self-help, family focused paperback -- best of all, it’s probably already on your shelf. We’re referring to your employee benefits booklet!

OK, at first glance, it may not seem like the most compelling material. But if your benefits package is collecting dust, you’re probably missing out on some rich content. Beyond just teeth cleaning and new glasses, there’s likely untapped perks in your plan.

Here’s why it pays to take advantage of your extended healthcare benefits:

Massage & Osteopathic Treatments

A free massage requires little convincing. Some insurance plans will cover up to $500 annually for a massage, while most will absorb at least a percentage of the cost. In addition, osteopathic care can help reduce pain, swelling, strains, sprains and imbalances that occur while sitting at a desk all day. Both treatments are often covered in your benefits plan, and will help bring your body back into a state of balance and health.

Tailored Health & Wellness Programs

Did you know you could be eligible to receive a personal Pilates session covered through your extended healthcare benefits? Here’s how it works; you’ll be assessed by one of our affiliated Physiotherapists and they’ll determine whether a class or a one-on-one program is required.

Together, we’ll develop a progressive Pilates based therapeutic plan to help strengthen, repair your health issues. Our contemporary lessons will give you the tools to confidently return to independent exercise routines, without the risk of resurfacing the injury. This saves you from paying a bigger price down the line.

Quick & Easy Reimbursements

Thankfully most insurance providers now accept “e-claims” allowing you to electronically submit your receipts. You can immediately complete a claim online following your treatment, which means your money will be back in your pocket in no time.

Your Boss Will Thank You

Employee health and wellness is good for business. Taking preventative care of yourself now keeps you healthy, energized and continually productive for your employer. These specialized treatments will help maintain a healthy body, mind and soul, positively impacting all facets of life.
