Counselling sessions can be paid for through several different sources. Most commonly clients use an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) or an Employee Family Assistance Program (EFAP), access an insurance benefit or pay for sessions personally.
Therapists at PPC charge between $115 and $130 for counselling sessions. Conflict Resolution may be charged a higher hourly rate.
According to the Psychological Society of Saskatchewan, the recommended fee for Psychological services provided by Psychologists registered with the Saskatchewan College of Psychologists is $160.00 per hour (effective 2014).
Many insurance providers offer coverage for psychological services through extended health benefits. If you have extended health benefits it is possible that the services we provide will be partially or fully reimbursable.
However, not all insurance plans will reimburse fees for sessions with any therapist. Many plans are specific about therapist credentialing. Check with your insurance company to determine if the therapist you would like to see qualifies under your specific plan.
Insurance policies (or extended health benefits) may offer some reimbursement for fees paid. Clients are responsible to pay the counsellor’s fee at the time of the session. PPC does not directly invoice insurance companies. Services provided by a Registered Social Worker may be able to be claimed on income tax through the Medical Expense Tax Credit. In the event that an Employee Assistance Program is not available, sessions are payable by Visa, Mastercard, Debit, Cheque or Cash and are often partially/fully reimbursable through an insurance program.
