Psychological services are billed at $190 per therapy hour (50 minutes). The fees for private psychological services are not covered by Nova Scotia’s MSI (Medical Services Insurance) Program, but your private health insurance may cover all or part of the fees for your sessions. At this time we do not offer direct billing as a practice-wide policy, but we encourage you to speak with your specific clinician to discuss whether she can direct bill for you. Most clients will have to pay up front for their sessions, and submit their receipts for reimbursement. Services provided by a Registered Psychologist can be claimed as a medical expense and are tax-deductible.
Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.
I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:
- Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
- Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
- Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
- Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, e-Transfers, and Debit (tap).
Please note that our clinic requires 24 hours notice of any cancellation or appointment change. To cancel or make changes to your appointment please contact the office directly at 902-832-5190. Cancellations sent through email or online are only considered cancelled if received 24 hours prior to your appointment time and are confirmed by return email or call. If you do not receive confirmation of your cancellation we have not received your cancellation request and you will therefore be charged the full session fee.
