Fees for Psychological and Counseling Services
Our fees for psychological services fall within the guidelines set out by the Ontario Psychological Association.
Fees for psychological services are not covered by OHIP but may be reimbursable through the client’s own or their spouse’s Extended Health Care Plans. For example, employees of Ontario Hydro, General Motors, The Durham District School Board, Durham Regional Police Services, Durham College and University of Ontario Institute of Technology and many other companies all have extended health benefits. It is advisable that you contact your insurance company to ask questions about your coverage for psychological services.
On a limited basis, we offer a sliding scale for individuals who do not have access to extended health care benefits.
Fees for psychological assessment and treatment services for individuals recovering from motor vehicle accident or work-related injury may be covered through their Auto Insurance company or the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board.
Please note that psychological services are a tax-deductible health expense that can be claimed as a medical expense on your personal income tax.
Payment for each session is due at the time of the session and can be made by either cash, cheque, Visa, or MasterCard. You will be provided with a receipt after each payment.
We require at least 48 hours of notice for a cancellation of an appointment. Our policy is to charge full regular fees for missed appointments and cancellations made with less than 48 hours notice.
You may leave a message at any time on our voice mail or with our office assistant at 905.985.1130 to notify us of your need to cancel or change an appointment.
