Short and Long Term Disability
If you are unable to perform your work duties due to a psychological condition and are eligible for short or long term disability, then your disability insurance carrier may cover your therapy sessions and if the sessions are not covered, then you may have coverage through your extended health benefits.
Will my extended health benefits cover your services?
Our services are covered by most extended insurance plans (e.g., Sun Life, Manulife, Great West Life, Blue Cross etc.) and some Employee Assistance Plans (EAPs). Psychological services are not covered by OHIP (Ontario Health Insurance Plan). Extended health plans can differ. Please check your insurance plan regarding coverage and claim procedures.
Is there a sliding fee scale?
Yes, a sliding scale fee may be considered under special circumstances.
Is counselling for one person only or can my whole family come in together?
We provide individual, couple and family therapy. Often when one member of a family has a problem, everyone is affected. Wherever possible we encourage the family to meet together and help develop solutions and strategies that will work for them.
Do I need a referral from a doctor?
Our services do not require a referral from a doctor. However, a referral for service may be required by your insurance carrier. Various plans differ so please check with your coverage provider regarding claim procedures prior to your first appointment. If a referral is needed by your doctor, it need only state, "I refer _________ for psychological consultation or assessment".
