Treatment protocols for strains and sprains
8   A strain or sprain is to be treated by
	(a)	educating the patient with respect to at least the following 
matters:
	(i)	the desirability of an early return to one or more of the 
following, as applicable:
	(A)	the patient's employment, occupation or 
profession;
	(B)	the patient's training or education in a program or 
course;
	(C)	the normal activities of the patient's daily living;
	(ii)	an estimate of the probable length of time that 
symptoms will last;
	(iii)	the expected course of recovery;
	(b)	managing inflammation and pain, as required,
	(i)	by the protected use of ice;
	(ii)	by elevating the injured area;
	(iii)	by compression;
	(iv)	by using reasonable and necessary equipment to protect 
a sprained joint during the acute phase of recovery;
	(c)	teaching the patient about maintaining flexibility, balance, 
strength and the functions of the injured area;
	(d)	giving advice about self-care and expected return to one or 
more of the activities described in clause (a)(i)(A) to (C);
	(e)	discussing the disadvantage of extended dependence on 
health care providers and passive modalities of care;
	(f)	subject to section 9(3), providing treatment that is 
appropriate and within the scope of practice of the health care 
practitioner providing it, and that, in the opinion of the health 
care practitioner, is necessary for the treatment or 
rehabilitation of the injury;
	(g)	any other adjunct therapy that, in the opinion of the health 
care practitioner, is necessary for the treatment or 
rehabilitation of the injury and that is linked to the continued 
clinical improvement of the patient.
Diagnostic and treatment authorization for strains and sprains
9(1)  Within the practitioner's scope of practice, a health care 
practitioner may authorize, for a 1st degree, 2nd degree or 3rd degree 
strain or sprain,
	(a)	one visit to a health care practitioner for an assessment of the 
injury, including the preparation of a treatment plan and 
prescribed claim form, if required, which is in addition to the 
visits that may be authorized under subsection (2);
	(b)	necessary diagnostic imaging, laboratory testing and 
specialized testing;
	(c)	necessary medication as determined by the health care 
practitioner;
	(d)	acquisition of necessary supplies to assist in the treatment or 
rehabilitation of the injury.
(2)  Subject to the limits described in section 15, within the 
practitioner's scope of practice, a health care practitioner may 
authorize, for the treatment of a 1st degree or 2nd degree strain or 
sprain, not more than a combined total of 10 physical therapy, 
chiropractic and adjunct therapy visits to provide the treatment 
described in section 8.
(3)  Under these protocols, a health care practitioner may not use a 
visit to treat a 1st degree or 2nd degree strain or sprain to a peripheral 
joint by a deliberate, brief, fast thrust to move the joints of the spine 
beyond the normal range but within the anatomical range of motion, 
which generally results in an audible click or pop.
(4)  Within the practitioner's scope of practice, a health care 
practitioner may authorize, for a 3rd degree strain or sprain,
	(a)	necessary diagnostic imaging, laboratory testing and 
specialized testing;
	(b)	necessary medication as determined by the health care 
practitioner;
	(c)	acquisition of necessary supplies to assist in the treatment or 
rehabilitation of the injury.
(5)  Subject to the limits described in section 15, within the 
practitioner's scope of practice, a health care practitioner may 
authorize, for the treatment of a 3rd degree strain or sprain, a combined 
total of 21 physical therapy, chiropractic and adjunct therapy visits to 
provide the treatment described in section 8, and in particular 
definitive care of specific muscles, muscle groups, tendons or 
ligaments at specific anatomical sites, including, as required,
	(a)	immobilization,
	(b)	strengthening exercises,
	(c)	surgery, and
	(d)	if surgery is required, post-operative rehabilitation therapy.

Guidelines
2   The Superintendent may issue guidelines respecting location and 
movements on the grid.
Steps to determine grid premium
3   To determine a grid premium in respect of a private passenger 
vehicle,
	(a)	the relevant driver and any occasional driver of the private 
passenger vehicle must be determined in accordance with 
section 4,
	(b)	the relevant driver and any occasional driver of the private 
passenger vehicle must each be located at a grid step in 
accordance with section 5, and
	(c)	the grid steps at which the relevant driver and any occasional 
driver are located must be converted to a dollar amount in 
accordance with section 6.
Relevant and occasional drivers
4(1)  The relevant driver and any occasional driver of a private 
passenger vehicle must be determined in accordance with this section.
(2)  If the policyholder has the same number of private passenger 
vehicles as there are drivers of those vehicles, each driver must be 
matched to a vehicle, and the drivers are the relevant drivers in respect 
of the vehicles to which they are matched.
(3)  If the policyholder has more private passenger vehicles than there 
are drivers of those vehicles,
	(a)	each driver must be matched to a vehicle, and
	(b)	for those vehicles not matched with a driver, the drivers 
already matched must be matched with the one or more 
unmatched vehicles, starting with the driver who has the 
lowest percentage determined under section 6(1)(b),
and the drivers are the relevant drivers in respect of the vehicles to 
which they are matched.
(4)  If the policyholder has fewer private passenger vehicles than there 
are drivers of those vehicles,
	(a)	the highest rated drivers must be matched with the vehicles 
first, but an inexperienced driver may not be matched unless 
the inexperienced driver is the principal driver of one of the 
vehicles, and the drivers are the relevant drivers in respect of 
the vehicles to which they are matched, and
	(b)	the remaining drivers must not be matched with respect to 
any of the vehicles unless the drivers are inexperienced 
drivers, in which case those inexperienced drivers are 
considered to be occasional drivers.
(5)  If the number of occasional drivers is equal to or less than the 
number of passenger vehicles, each occasional driver must be matched 
to a vehicle.
(6)  If there are more occasional drivers than there are vehicles, each 
occasional driver must be matched to a vehicle starting with the 
occasional driver who is the highest rated driver, but in no case may 
more than one occasional driver be matched in respect of the same 
vehicle.
Locating the correct grid step
5(1)  A grid step must be established for each driver of a private 
passenger vehicle.
(2)  A grid step is first established for a driver
	(a)	with respect to a driver under basic coverage for a private 
passenger vehicle in effect on September 30, 2004, as of the 
relevant date of that coverage, and
	(b)	if clause (a) does not apply in respect of a driver, the first 
time a policy for basic coverage for a private passenger 
vehicle comes into effect on or after October 1, 2004 under 
which the driver is included.
(3)  The grid step is first established for a driver by moving down one 
grid step from grid step zero for each year of driving experience then, 
if applicable, moving up 5 grid steps for each at-fault claim during the 
6 years preceding the relevant date.
(4)  An insurer must, with respect to each subsequent application for 
basic coverage, make any necessary adjustments to the driver's 
location on the grid under subsections (5) and (6), starting from the 
previous grid location for that person, whether or not location on the 
grid was previously established by the same insurer.
(5)  If, during the term of the policy being renewed or replaced,
	(a)	the driver had an at-fault claim, the driver must be moved up 
5 grid steps for each at-fault claim during the term of the 
policy, or
	(b)	the driver did not have an at-fault claim and is not already 
located at grid step -15, the driver must be moved down one 
grid step for each full year of driving experience with no 
at-fault claim since the driver's location on the grid was last 
changed or, if it has never changed, since the driver's 
location on the grid was first established.
(6)  Despite subsection (5), if no at-fault claim have been made for the 
6 consecutive years of driving experience immediately preceding the 
coming into effect or renewal of a policy for basic coverage, and the 
driver is located higher than grid step zero, the driver must be located 
on grid step zero.
(7)  Every insurer must on the request of another insurer provide to that 
insurer any information necessary to determine a driver's location on 
the grid, including information about his or her current location on the 
grid.
Computation of grid premium
6(1)  After each driver is located on a grid step in accordance with 
section 5, a premium must be determined for each driver as follows:
	(a)	determine the base premium for the driver in accordance with 
Schedule 3;
	(b)	determine the percentage by which to multiply the base 
premium in accordance with the following formula:
P = A + (A x B)
		where
	P  	means the percentage by which to multiply the base 
premium of the driver;
	A  	means the percentage of the base premium for the grid 
step of the driver determined in accordance with 
Schedule 2;
	B  	means the percentage surcharge, if any, calculated in 
accordance with Schedule 4;
	(c)	multiply the base premium determined in clause (a) by the 
percentage determined in clause (b).
(2)  The grid premium for basic coverage for a private passenger 
vehicle is the premium for the relevant driver determined in subsection 
(1) plus 25% of the premium determined in subsection (1) for the 
occasional driver, if any, of that vehicle.
