Psychological services are not covered by OHIP. Many employee extended health benefit plans, however, provide coverage for the services of a registered psychologist or psychological associate. Clients should evaluate their own extended health benefit plans in order to determine their level of available coverage. While I do not require a physician referral, some health benefits plans require a referral from a family physician in order to access benefits. The fees of psychologists are set according to guidelines outlined by the Ontario Psychological Association.
I am currently billing at a rate of $170.00 per hour for treatment, and at a rate of $170.00 per hour for assessment services, both face-to-face, as well as scoring, interpretation and report writing. Receipts will be provided that include my registration number with the College of Psychologists of Ontario.
Appointments that are missed or cancelled with less than 48 hours notice will be charged the full fee for the time scheduled.
