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