Insured and Uninsured Services
All medically necessary diagnostic and treatment services provided by Vitality Institute/Sante Medical are paid for by the government under your provincial health insurance plan. The fees charged by Vitality Institute/Sante Medical are strictly for non-insured health services. Payment of the non-insured health services fee is not a condition of access to insured services and does not guarantee access to insured physi¬cian services.
Our fees for services and treatments, whether as a standalone service or as part of a membership program, is strictly for the uninsured components. In Alberta and some other provinces, Vitality Institute/Sante Medical physicians may also bill the provincial health insurance plan for a limited/comprehensive physician visit/consultation, general visits, as well as certain tests such as EKGs.
