DVA - Department of Veterans Affairs
Town & Country Physiotherapy has worked with DVA patients for years. Our consistently thorough treatment approach has had patients, their children, friends, and family referrals coming to us for generations. Our dealing with Veterans Affairs Canada is one of mutual respect and can help speed up time-consuming paperwork. VAC has established a national treatment services program to ensure that eligible clients receive health care benefits and services in a timely and efficient manner.
Clients eligible for health care benefits or services are provided with a VAC health care identification card. This card must be presented at the first visit to ensure treatment fee coverage. Treatment authorization varies and can be determined at the first treatment visit. There are no user fees for DVA-funded treatments.
DVA offers benefits provided by health professionals such as physiotherapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, acupuncturists, chiropodists, podiatrists, osteopaths, occupational therapists, hearing and speech therapists, and psychologists. To receive some forms of therapy, clients must be referred by their doctor.
