Frequently Asked Questions
DO YOU OFFER SLIDING SCALE RATES?
We offer a slight discount to clients that do not have insurance or run out of insurance coverage during treatment. We also have Janet Fournier, Therapist in Training, on our team. Since she is in the final year of her program, her services will be provided at a discounted rate.
HOW LONG DOES EACH THERAPY SESSION TAKE?
Our one-hour sessions are a total of 50 minutes which allows your therapist time to take notes and prepare for your session. When booking an hour-and-a-half session, you will have 80 minutes with your therapist.
AM I COVERED BY MY INSURANCE?
We provide Registered Psychotherapy services. Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part.
There are many Green Sheild, Medavie Blue Cross, Desjardins, Great West Life, Manulife, and Sun Life Financial insurance plans that are covered. Please contact your provider before the first counselling session to see if Registered Psychotherapists are a part of your insurance plan and to verify how your plan compensates you for counselling services.
Healing Connections Psychotherapy does not offer direct billing but we will be happy to provide you with anything you need to submit for possible reimbursement.
We recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:
Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
Does my health insurance cover Registered Counselling Therapists or Canadian Certified Counsellors?
Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
