Are your services covered by insurance plans?

We are covered by most of insurance plans

Counselling & Psychotherapy services are not covered by OHIP, but most of the extended health care insurance plans cover all or a portion of the cost.
You can call or email your health insurance provider to ask about the amount they cover your plan for counselling & psychotherapy per year. You can also inquire about the date of renewal of that coverage yearly.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist and I am a member in The College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
Once your insurance coverage ends, you may ask your psychotherapist for a sliding scale that is suitable to your income to continue therapy until your new year coverage gets renewed. This ensures that you continue receiving the counselling and psychotherapy services you may need even if your insurance does not cover.
In cases where your insurance plan does not cover all the session, or if the client is not eligible for insurance coverage, therapy services can be claimed as a medical expense for income tax return.
