Include Occupational Therapy on Extended Health Benefit Plans

This petition had 2,134 supporters

In celebration of OT Month, Entwistle Power is circulating this petition designed to get Occupational Therapy included on Extended Health Benefit Plans!  Please provide us with your support!

The profession of Occupational Therapy is holistic, comprehensive, and addresses the many challenges children, adults and seniors face throughout the lifespan.  Through direct therapy, education, devices, and consultation, Occupational Therapy helps people to manage better physically, emotionally, cognitively and behaviorally while completing tasks at home, work, school, or in the community.  So, if OT is so helpful, why is it not included on most benefit plans?  It is time to help people to have access to this impactful profession!  

It is important to note that while some insurance companies do offer the choice of access to occupational therapists, their clients (employers or other service providers) choose to exclude the profession from the package purchased. 

Be sure to check out this guide provided by the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists to help get OT included in Extended Health Benefit plans. If your plan does not cover OT services be sure to sign our petition, talk to your employer, write to your union representative or your insurance provider. We can make OT services more available if we simply "Ask For It!"  

Sign the below petition if you think that Occupational Therapy should be added to Extended Health Benefit Plans and we will work to get this petition into the hands of carriers and employers all over Ontario!
