We do not want our clients to forgo the opportunity to make positive steps towards mental health due to financial hardship. If finances are or become a hindrance to you continuing with counselling, please let us know. Based on availability, we reserve a portion of our practice for clients with financial limitations (Eg. students, seniors, under-employed individuals). Fees for these clients can be negotiated and set on a sliding scale.
Some extended health benefit plans may reimburse all or a portion of the fees for Registered Clinical Counsellor Services. UBC’s AMS/GSS student Health Plan and SFU’s SFSS Health Plan does cover RCC (Registered Clinical Counsellor) services as well as some Sun Life, Manulife, Green Shield and Pacific Blue Cross plans. The Change Agency does not have the ability to do direct billing to your extended health benefit insurer.
Please check with your extended health care service provider as you may be eligible for coverage. If your extended health benefits plan does not currently include RCC’s, some clients have been successful in expanding their coverage to include RCC’s by asking their human resources department to contact their group insurance provider and request that their plan be changed to cover the services of a RCC at no additional cost.
