Unfortunately, counselling is likely not covered under these plans.  However, many extended health plans provide coverage for sessions with a registered social worker, and I am a registered social worker (RSW# 09239).  Please check with your insurance provider to determine the terms of your coverage. Questions to ask your provider are:

a) Do I have mental health insurance benefits?

b) What is my deductible, and has it been met?

c) How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?

d) What is the coverage amount per therapy session?

e) Is approval required from my primary care physician?
