Health Insurance Coverage


Many health insurance plans will pay a percentage of the session fee. 

Each plan has different stipulations about what they will cover, how much, and to what limit. 

Please contact your provider about your specific plan details, as your therapist does not have access to your personal plan information. 


Some key questions to ask your insurance provider may include: 

  • does my plan cover the services of a Registered Social Worker approved by the Nova Scotia College of Social Workers as a Licensed Private Practitioner? 
  • How much coverage do I have each year? What are the beginning and end dates of each fiscal year?
  • Does my plan cover 100% of the amount or do I have to pay a portion of each visit?
  • Do I require a physician's referral to qualify for coverage? 
  • How do I submit my claim for reimbursement? 
  • Can my therapist direct bill? 


Please note: Clinical social work services may be claimed through the Medical Expense Credit (METC) on your Income Tax . Visit www.cra.gc.ca/medical to learn more about how to claim the METC.
