Benefits

Extended Health Insurance

If you have extended health insurance benefits, your counselling, dietitian, kinesiology and personal training may be fully or partially covered. Here are a few questions to ask your insurance provider before your first appointment:

(specifically for counselling)

1. Do you cover a Registered Clinical Counsellor (BCACC) or a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCPA)? 


If not, ask them if they would make an exception. 

 

If your company does not cover an RCC or CCC, you may consider writing to ask the provider if they would make an exception. Because the fee for a registered clinical counsellor is usually less than a psychologist, your provider may make an exception in your case and your counselling dollars will actually go further.

 

You could even contact your employer, Human Resources Department, instead of the insurance company to request this change to the plan’s coverage. It shouldn't cost them any additional fee and once requested, is pretty straight-forward for them to do. Your request is important because most employers like to increase the number of benefits that their employees can access, especially when it does not cost extra. You also play an instrumental role in generating demand for mental health services to be treated similar to physical health services by insurance companies today (thanks!). If you need help drafting this request or would like an endorsement/support from your Counsellor, let me know here.

(for all services)

2. What is the maximum limit of funds* for counselling/kinesiology/dietitian/PT? Is there a limit per session?

3. Should my service provider bill the insurance company directly or should I pay them and will be reimbursed?

4. Are there any deductibles I might have to pay for using the coverage?

*Some insurance companies give a set amount of money that you can use in a year for paramedical or allied health servicees. It is important to know if they base this on a calendar year (beginning in January-December) or a fiscal year (beginning in April to May).
