Counselling services coverage available to Canadians
Extended Medical Health Care Plan
Great-West Life, Sunlife Insurance, Pacific Blue Cross, Green Shield Insurance, Manulife and other health care providers might be offering reimbursement for counselling services and offer counselling coverage.
Check with your individual policy if they cover services of ‘clinical counsellors’. If these services are not listed in your policy you might still be covered as many insurers recently added counselling to their coverage. Check with your HR department or the insurer. A doctor’s note might be required.
Such companies as Telus, LuluLemon have substantial coverage for counselling services.
Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) and Student Assistance Programs (SAP)
After you exhausted your extended health coverege benefits you still have access to short – term counselling through your EAP / SAP program at your work or school. Talk to your employer or directly to EAP company to set you up with a counsellor you chose to work with.
Our therapists are registered with EAP companies Aspiria, Arete and some other companies. All you have to do is to ask to connect you with a therapist you have chosen to work with.
