Just like you have benefit coverage for dental services and massage therapy treatments, you also likely have coverage for psychology services. If you are curious to see what your plan covers, or concerned about avoiding any out-of-pocket expenses, a quick phone call to your insurance provider will help you determine how much coverage you and your family have available for psychology, assessment and counselling services.
The 2019 Psychologists’ Association of Alberta Recommended Fee Schedule is $200 for a 50 minute session. During regular business hours*, Summit Psychology’s fees parallel the provincial fee schedule at $200 a session. Any required or recommended assessment batteries (time for scoring excluded) and workbook resources are also included in this fee. Evening, weekend and urgent consultations are $300 per 50 minutes.
Summit Psychology is pleased to offer its patients the ability to direct bill to a number of insurance providers. During non-peak times, we are also occasionally able to work through your Employee and Family Assistance Provider (EFAP) Program, which may also provide you with additional short-term counselling support. Sliding scale fee options are also available.
*To avoid the risk of being charged an after hours consultation fee, patients are encouraged to inquire about regular office days and times.
