Psychological services are not covered by Manitoba Health or by Social Assistance Programs.
If you have dental coverage from your work, chances are good that psychotherapy provided by a Clinical Psychologist, or associate is also covered by your insurance company, up to a certain limit.
Costs can be further defrayed by insurance, if your plan offers a Health Spending Account.
Psychotherapy provided by a Clinical Psychologist, or Clinical Associate (supervised by a Clinical Psychologist) are considered medical expenses, and as such, psychotherapy fees not reimbursed by insurance can be claimed on your taxes. This can help off-set the cost of service. A prescription for psychotherapy may be required by your medical doctor to qualify. Ask your accountant for details. Additional information can also be found on the CRA website.
I do not direct bill insurance companies, excluding members of the RCMP and VAC. You will be required to pay for your session and submit receipts to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
