Payment for private counselling/psychological services are not covered under Alberta Health Care, however, counselling services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Clients are responsible for paying any amounts not covered by insurance at the end of each session.
Our therapists can direct bill most insurance companies (e.g. Alberta Blue Cross, Green Shield, Medavie, Canada Life/Great West Life, Claim Secure, Group Source and Industrial Reliance), except Manulife Financial and Sun Life Financial, both of which require their members to pay up front and submit for reimbursement for psychology services.
Please contact your provider directly to determine if you have coverage for psychology services by asking the following questions:
Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
What registration requirements does my health insurance have of the provider (i.e., Register Psychologist or Registered Provisional Psychologist, Registered Social Worker Masters Level)?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
Please note: we are not able to contact your provider to determine how much coverage you have.
Acceptable Payment Methods:
Cash, Check, American Express, Visa and MasterCard accepted for payment.
Cheques that are returned will incur a $30.00 administration fee.
