When it comes to enquiries about counselling services, the question, “am I covered to see you?” is one of the most frequent and important questions I get. For many people if affects how much counselling they can receive, if at all, especially if money is tight. Here are some payment options.
Insurance & Extended Health Benefits
Clients who have extended health benefits through their employer may be reimbursed for all or a portion of their affordable counselling fees. Services will be paid for in advance and Positive Circles can work with our clients to ensure they have the right paperwork for the appropriate reimbursement.
Employee Assistance Programs (EAP)
Many employers will pay for short-term counselling services for their employees under “Employee Assistance Programs” (EAP). These services may include counselling, training, assessments, and workshops. Please check with your employer.
EAP programs are designed to help employees and their families deal with issues that affect their life. Personal problems and work stress can result in increased absenteeism, lower productivity and work place conflicts.
Talk to your employer or Human Resources department about the EAP benefits program to cover your counselling sessions.
Your appointment requires your therapist to reserve a significant amount of time exclusively for your benefit.
Since it is reserved for you, we reserve the right to charge your full fee for missed appointments and appointments that are cancelled with less than 24 business hours notice.
