If you have extended health benefits though your employer, you and your family members may be eligible for coverage. Companies such as Blue Cross, Great West Life, Sunlife and others may offer benefit packages that include coverage for services of a Registered Clinical Counsellor. Counselling services may also be covered under your Health Spending Account. After paying for your session you will be provided with a receipt which you can then submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. You will need to confirm coverage with your benefit provider before submitting receipts.
If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident, you may be eligible for counselling sessions at no cost to you. You need to contact your lawyer or adjuster on the case to find out if any sessions are authorized for you under Part 7 of the Motor Vehicle Act.
First Nations Health Authority may provide coverage of counselling sessions to eligible clients.
If you are a victim of a crime, you may be eligible to apply for coverage through the Crime Victim Assistance Program.
If you are currently receiving assistance from Work BC and are in need of counselling sessions to improve your chances of getting work, you may inquire with your case manager about coverage.
