Rates, Fees & Coverage

Fees

$ 145.00 / hour .  All sessions are 60 minutes, unless specifically negotiated with the therapist.

The fee for an hour session is due at the end of the session unless other specific arrangements have been made in advance.  Payment includes the time in session, preparation and record keeping. Our fees our consistent with the set fee scale for British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (RCC) as well a The British Columbia College of Social Workers (BCCSW).

Fees can be paid by cheque, cash, credit card (+ small process fee);  e-transfer is accepted by some therapists ~ please discuss with the therapist

Generally there is no third party billing; clients make payment and they can submit their receipt to their  insurance provider if coverage applies.

Coverage

You may have Extended Health Benefit Insurance for fee coverage  ~ each employer has different coverage and plan coverage varies  ~ so you need to inquire specifically to your Insurance company for the details of your insurance.  Check if your coverage is specific to RCC (Registered Clinical Counsellor) or RSW (Registered Social Work); not psychologists.

Extended Health  (benefits through your work employer) is not the same as EFAP OR EAP  (Employee & Family Assistance Program).

Generally there is no third party billing; clients make payment and they can submit their receipt to their  insurance provider if coverage applies.

BC Medical (MSP) does not cover counselling services.

Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP) is provided by a few therapists ~ call for details and the specifics of that plan.
