Most extended health, short term or long term disability benefit packages cover the services of a Registered Clinical Counsellor.

At Healing Spaces, we now offer direct billing with Green Shield, First Nations Health Authority and Worksafe BC, making your mental health care journey financially more convenient.

You can now have your counselling sessions charged directly to your insurance provider, minimizing any out-of-pocket expenses and streamlining the payment procedure.

Coverages vary by employer. If your insurer does not provide direct billing, we’re happy to provide a receipt in order for you to submit directly to them.

Here are some steps you can take:

Contact Your Insurance Provider:

If you already have extended health care coverage, get in touch with your insurance provider. They can provide you with information about the specific services and practitioners covered under your plan.

Review Plan Documents:

Carefully review the terms and conditions of your extended health care plan. Look for information related to coverage for mental health services and whether registered clinical counsellors are included.

Check with the Registered Clinical Counsellor:

Some counsellors may be able to provide information about insurance coverage. They may have experience dealing with various insurance providers and can offer guidance on how to navigate the process.

Contact Other Insurance Providers:

If you are shopping for insurance or considering a change in your coverage, contact different insurance providers to inquire about their policies regarding coverage for registered clinical counsellors.

Speak with Your Employer’s HR Department:

If your extended health care coverage is provided through your employer, reach out to the human resources department. They may be able to provide information about the coverage available to you.

Check the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC):

The BCACC is a professional association for registered clinical counsellors in British Columbia. They may have resources or information on insurance coverage for their members.

Remember that insurance coverage can change, so it’s important to verify the details with your specific insurance provider. Additionally, you may need to check if the counsellor you plan to see is recognized or accepted by your insurance provider.

Keep in mind that mental health coverage may be subject to specific terms, conditions, and limitations, and pre-authorization may be required in some cases. Always confirm the details with your insurance provider to ensure accurate and up-to-date information.
