You’ll need to speak to your Human Resources department or directly with your insurance provider to determine the specific coverage you are entitled to receive. At Redbird Therapy Centre, we are generally Registered Psychotherapists, so make sure you ask if psychotherapy with an RP is covered.
Some of our practitioners are Social Workers, who are often covered through health insurance plans. Be sure to confirm with your insurance provider.
Some employers and insurance providers have not yet changed policies to include Psychotherapists on their listed Regulated Health Professionals. If you find that you do not have coverage for our services, you may want to approach your HR department to advocate for psychotherapy to be included. You can ask them to make an adjustment to the overall plan, or an exception for you to reach your goals.
The Registered Psychotherapists Insurance Committee (RPIC) has information and resources that can help you , including a form letter you can submit to your employer or your union.
