Find an Occupational Therapist
SSOT Membership List of Occupational Therapists
Health Regions / Hospitals
The cost of therapy treatment received through a Saskatchewan Health Region or hospital is covered by Saskatchewan Health. Many hospitals have outpatient therapy programs. Community therapy services (services provided in the home) may also be provided through your health region. In-patient therapy may be provided after surgery, an accident, a stroke, a burn, a heart attack, an amputation, a respiratory illness, and many other conditions. Some facilities may request a doctor’s referral, so call your health region or nearest hospital therapy or rehabilitation department and ask about their policies.
In Saskatchewan, a doctor's referral is not required to receive treatment from Occupational Therapists working in a private clinic. Treatment is provided on a 'fee for service' basis; that is, you - the client, pay for the treatment received. However, treatment may be covered under auto insurance plans, workers' insurance plans or other extended health plans (third party insurers). Contact your employee benefits plan administrator or private health insurance provider to discuss the details.
