How do I know if I’m covered for therapy?

While psychotherapy and social work are regulated health professions in Ontario, they are unfortunately not covered under OHIP, OW or ODSP.

 

The majority of extended health benefits, however, do cover psychotherapy and social work services (typically in your health and dental insurance package from your employer)! We encourage you to speak with your insurance provider about counseling services provided by a Registered Social Worker or Registered Psychotherapist to determine your eligibility and approved rates of coverage. We do not reimburse sessions if it turns out you do not have coverage. 

 

Our team current has Registered Social Workers (MSW RSW), along with Registered Psychotherapists.
