Individual session fees for children, adolescents, and adults is $157.50 for 50 minutes and $183.75 for 50 minutes for couples and families. New individual and couples/families are required to pay a $75.00/$100.00 session deposit fee respectively to guarantee their session date. Payment is required a minimum of 24 hours before the scheduled session or the spot may be given to another client. The balance is due at the first session. The session deposit fee is only required for new clients and is non-refundable. Payment may be made using Credit Card, Cash, Cheque, Debit, or E-Transfer.
Some insurance companies MAY cover fees such as Alberta Blue Cross, Great-West Life, Arete HR, Aspiria, Green Shield, BC CVAP, PSN, Manulife, and possibly others. However, all insurance plans are unique therefore it is not possible to determine if fees for counselling services will be covered. It is the responsibility of the client to check with their insurance plan to determine whether or not services are covered.
Invoices are provided upon receipt of payment and clients are encouraged to submit them to their insurance plan for reimbursement. If fees are not covered, it may be possible to appeal the decision. If the client appeals, Guidance Professional Services Inc. (GPS) can help with the appeal process.
