If you have private insurance you may want to contact your insurance provider prior to booking a counselling appointment. You can check your extended plan to see if there is any mention of counselling being covered by an RSW (Registered Social Worker) or by a professional who holds an MSW (Master of Social Work).

The insurance company might ask for verification that a counsellor is registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSSSW), which is information that can be located here.

When you pay for a session, I will provide you with a registered receipt that contains all of the relevant information needed to submit a claim.

This includes:

  • Invoice #
  • Date of the session
  • Type of Service
  • Duration of session
  • Attendance
  • Cost of session
  • Confirmation of payment
  • Form of payment
  • My business name
  • My personal name
  • My credentials
  • My registration number

**Please note that your provider may not cover missed appointments or late cancellations.
