Psychotherapy services provided in private practice are not covered by provincial health insurance plans (such as OHIP). However, many employee assistance programs and extended healthcare plans (with such insurance companies
as Manulife, Green Shield, Blue Cross, Equitable Life, Great-West Life, Sun Life, and others) provide coverage for psychotherapy. Check with your provider to see if the services offered by a therapist registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario are covered by your benefits. You will be provided with a receipt to submit to your insurer for reimbursement.
If your provider denies coverage for psychotherapy, we may be able to appeal this decision. In either case, you can claim the cost of non-reimbursed psychotherapy services as a medical expense when you file your income tax return.
If you have been involved in a motor-vehicle accident (MVA), your psychotherapy can be funded directly by your auto insurer. If you have been pre-approved for psychotherapy by WSIB or CICB, the board will be billed directly.
