There are a number of ways to have your treatment costs reimbursed:
If you have an insurance plan through your employer (or through a spouse’s or parent’s employer), you may be entitled to reimbursement for “psychological services” or treatment with a “psychologist or psychological associate”. Plans vary from $300 to $10,000 per year, and you may wish to check the details before booking your first appointment.
If you are on short-term or long-term disability, you may be eligible for funded treatment through your insurer, if CBT has been recommended by your physician for the purposes of rehabilitation or preparation for return to work.
If you are a full-time student at Western University and have not opted out of your health plan, you are automatically entitled to receive up to $750 per school year for psychological assessment and/or treatment with a psychologist of your choosing. Western students with a physical or mental disability may also be eligible for a $2,000 bursary for psychological services. Contact Services for Students with Disabilities at (519) 661-2147 for additional information and applications.
Fanshawe students with a physical or mental disability may be eligible for a $2,000 bursary for psychological services. Contact Counselling & Accessibility Services at (519) 452-4282 for additional information and applications.
The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) allows you to claim treatment with a psychologist as a medical expense on your income tax.
We help first responders dealing with PTSD and related problems to return to work. In some circumstances WSIB may provide financial support to help individuals receive the help they need. If you are a first responder with a WSIB claim, you can call your case worker to ask if you are entitled to psychological services. If so, they will communicate with Archways so that we can bill them directly.
