Private Counselling Information
If you have extended health coverage: Check with your individual extended health care provider/insurance carrier to determine what type of practitioner is covered under your plan and to assess what the coverage limits/amounts are. Some plans cover the counselling/psychotherapy services of registered psychologists, registered psychotherapists and registered social workers. If you do not have extended health coverage, you can still access the services ofa registered psychologist, psychotherapist or social worker, but will need to pay for the services. Note: OHIP covers fees that are paid to psychiatrists.
