Extended Medical Plan

Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) services might be covered by your extended health care plan. Great-West Life, Manulife, Green Shield, Pacific Blue Cross, Insurance, Sunlife Insurance, Pacific Blue Cross, and other insurance providers may reimburse you for the services of RCCs. Please check with your provider if your policy will cover your counselling sessions.

If they do not list “Registered Clinical Counsellor” in their policy but cover 'psychologist' or 'social worker services' it might still be possible to get your counselling services reimbursed. You might still get reimbursed if you request of your employer and/or insurance company to adjust your plan. To do this, talk to your employer, Human Resources department or insurance company and request a small change to the plan's coverage.

*Workers Compensation Board (WCB)

* ICBC (if involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident causing anxiety and trauma you may get approval for counselling)
