Insurance Coverage

ottawa-counselling-insurance-optionsOur services are covered by most insurance companies and insurance plans. At the end of each appointment, you will receive a receipt from an Ontario Registered Psychologist for the counselling services provided to you by our Registered Psychotherapists, Registered Social Workers, and counsellors. You’ll be able to present that receipt to your insurance provider for reimbursement.

It’s the client’s responsibility to know if such receipts are acceptable to your insurance company. Be aware that insurance companies generally only cover a portion of the cost of counselling, usually somewhere in the range of 80%.

Counselling services are NOT covered by OHIP.

Before your appointment, contact your insurance company for details on your coverage. Be sure to verify the following:

  • What psychological services are covered by your policy.
  • Whether or not a receipt from an Ontario Registered Psychologist for services provided by a Registered Psychotherapist, Registered Social Worker, or a Counsellor is accepted by your insurance plan.
  • Who is covered, per person and per family.
  • If the insurer pays a set amount per visit, a portion of the fee per visit, or a total amount independent of sessions.
  • If session length is an issue.
  • If you need a physician’s referral.
  • The procedure for reimbursement.
