In private practice, psychological services are not covered by provincial health insurance (OHIP) but are covered by most extended health plans. The psychologist bills the patient directly and they are provided with a receipt that can be submitted to an insurer for reimbursement. It is important to check with your insurer to obtain details regarding the amount and type of coverage you have, and what information they need from you in order to be reimbursed. When insurance plans only provide limited coverage, receipts may be tax deductible for any remainder when you have a physician referral.
