Insurance

Direct billing is provided for eligible extended healthcare plans and can be inquired about when booking your first appointment. Otherwise, receipts provided for counselling sessions can be submitted to non-eligible healthcare plans for coverage, or in some cases, may be submitted as a tax deductible medical expense for income tax purposes.

In order to find out if your specific healthcare or employee benefit plan includes counselling & psychotherapy services, please contact your current health insurance provider and ask if coverage is provided for a Registered Counselling Therapist (RCT-C) or a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC).

Other specifics to inquire about with your health insurance provider include:

  • Whether or not you need a referral from your primary care physician in order to receive coverage for counselling services
  • How your plan will reimburse you for paid counselling services, including percentage of cost covered per session and whether or not you are limited to a certain number of sessions per calendar year

I absolutely understand the need to reschedule or cancel an appointment in order to accommodate the nature of life’s unpredictabilities.
