INSURANCE & FEES
Psychologists' fees are not covered under OHIP; however, fees for REGISTERED psychologists are often covered by an extended health benefits plan from your employer or an independently purchased plan. There are other circumstances in which a registered psychologist's fees may be covered, including but not limited to coverage by your auto insurer if you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, or in the case of WSIB claims.
Psychological services vary in price, and it is reasonable to want to know how much a psychologist charges and factor this into the equation as part of your selection process. Rates vary depending on whether one is seeking therapy, a psychological assessment or a forensic/medico-legal evaluation. Some forensic evaluations are covered under legal aid. Please feel free to call to discuss fees further.
