REHABILITATION PROGRAM - EXERCISE/SWIMMING PROGRAM FEES

Post by teentitan on Tue 03 May 2016, 15:41

In another thread someone posted a CVA link about this program. A vet can only get reimbursement if it is monitored and supervised by a health professional.

It does not cover regular gym membership....bummer. Here's the POC I'm referring to:

The POC12 Policy says the following:

27.Swimming and/or exercise programs can be provided to clients who
need exercise or swimming therapy in response to an identified health
need. Generally, swimming and/or exercise programs are not to be
provided when they are being used strictly as a regular exercise, or as
a preventative measure.

28.Swimming and/or exercise programs may be approved by VAC when:
a.the program is part of a structured rehabilitation plan or the
program is required for rehabilitation of an acute condition or of an
acute flare-up of a chronic condition that requires a short period of
rehabilitation; and
b.it has been developed and is being monitored by an approved health
care practitioner.
Monitored means that the health professional periodically reviews the
program and the client’s progress and adjusts the program as required;
and
c.the client’s participation in the program is being directly
supervised by the approved health care practitioner who developed the
plan or by an individual working under the guidance of the approved
health care practitioner who developed the plan.
Directly supervised means that the health professional or another
designated individual is present to provide guidance and assistance when
the client is carrying out the prescribed exercise or swimming plan.

29.Requests to extend a program beyond what has been initially approved
can be approved when there is a continued need. Generally, VAC would
expect that such a request be supported by documentation which confirms
the client’s attendance and participation in the program and
demonstrates the effectiveness of the intervention.

Interesting... Tx Teen. Aquatics definitely help me, but Lake Erie don't need my VAC number.
They should be made aware though. I got POC 12 but Lake Erie is better than bugging my nice CM.
Don't need a song, dance, or a pina colada either.
That's just me though.

Swimming is one of the best therapy one can get be it in the pool , or outdoors.

The pool for the Winter Months is the way to go.

Teen for gym memberships GoodLife has a real good deal For Veterans , they have facilities right across the Country , the Veteran discount is worth looking into and if I'm not mistaken your discount is for the whole Family.
