  Fees and Payment


Fees 
Our hourly billing rate for individual appointments is $180.00.  The initial consultation, which is 1 1/2 hours, is billed at $270.00.  Our groups are offered at the rate of $80.00 per each 1.5 hour session.  We accept cheque or cash as a method of payment, but unfortunately cannot accept debit or credit. Some clinicians do accept e-transfer payment.

Extended Health Coverage
Most clients have extended health benefits through their workplace that cover the services of a registered Psychologist. Please check with your workplace or insurance company to understand the type of coverage your plan offers. Some plans require a physician's referral for psychological services before clients can access their extended health coverage.

Psychological services are not covered by OHIP. If you would like to see psychologists covered by OHIP you could write to your Member of Provincial Parliament or to the Minister of Health at Queen's Park, Toronto. 

Payment
Clients are issued invoices/receipts at the end of each session which can be submitted to your insurance company if you have extended health benefits. Payment from the insurance company is usually directly to you; we do not submit claims on your behalf.  In all cases our agreement is with you, the client, and you are responsible for keeping your account up to date.

Cancellation Policy
We request that people give 48 hours notice to cancel and/or reschedule appointments. Unless some urgent matter makes this option impossible, our full fee will be charged for missed appointments not cancelled 48 hours in advance.
