Ontario Health Insurance (OHIP) does not cover counseling services provided by a RSW (Registered Social Worker). However, many employee extended benefit plans do cover RSW’s with a Masters degree. If you are employed and have a benefit plan, your extended health benefits may provide coverage for my services. You can contact your benefit provider or human resources department directly to clarify your coverage.
My fee per 50 minute session is $110.00. I accept cash, cheque and e-transfers. I do not accept interact payment.
As of September 26, 2012 Canada Revenue Agency has advised that Social Workers are approved providers for the medical expenses tax credit. Social Workers are a claimable medical expense for income tax purposes.
