Private psychological services are not covered by Medicare, but they are covered by many extended healthcare plans (e.g., Blue Cross, Sunlife). Some plans cover the services of a licensed psychologist, but not a licensed counselling therapist (LCT). It is your responsibility to check which professionals are covered by your plan, coverage amounts, etc. We will gladly direct bill those insurance companies that provide this option, otherwise we will give you a receipt to submit. We typically offer direct billing through workers’ compensation boards, Veterans Affairs Canada, Canadian Armed Forces, and RCMP.
