Extended Health Funding

Third party billing:

Many clients are eligible for funding under their extended health care plans, or under various government programs.
Extended health care plans
Health insurance or extended health benefit plans may reimburse counseling fees paid to Registered Social Workers. Your health benefits administrator and your employer can provide you with more information. In British Columbia, organizations that may reimburse fees for counseling with a Registered Social Worker include, but are not limited to:
Air Canada
Bank of Montreal
BC Hydro
Blue Cross (Veterans & RCMP)
Canada Post
Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation
Great West Life
ICBC
ILWU
Province of BC
Telus (union employees)
University of British Columbia
Worksafe BC
It is important that you check with your extended health care provider to see if they cover counseling with a Registered Social Worker. If you would like to provide your employer with more information on the benefits of including Registered Social Workers in your company’s Extended Benefits package, please see the information provided on the BC Association of Social Workers Website at: http://www.bcasw.org/content/home.asp
Other funding:
Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP)
If you have been a victim of crime in British Columbia and the crime has been reported to the police, you may qualify for psychotherapy funding from CVAP. Typically, 12 to 24 sessions are granted, with the possibility of renewing the application. Their site is:
 Once you have received an approval letter with your file number, and number of sessions approved, you can call and book an appointment.
Non-Insured Health Benefits (First Nations Health Authority) for First Nations and Inuit People.
This program currently provides counseling to First Nations people through 2 programs: a crisis intervention program, and the IRS program. Individuals with Indian Status who are experiencing a crisis may be eligible for services under the crisis intervention program. The Indian Residential School Support Services Division provides counseling to Residential School Survivors and, in some cases, to their immediate family members.
In recent years, funding for psychotherapy and other health services has been turned over to some individual First Nations Bands for administration. If this has happened with your Band, an application for services would need to be filed with them. Currently, in addition working with FNHA, I also work with: Inter-tribal Health, Nu-chah-nulth Tribal Council, Squamish Nation, Musquem Indian Band.
PLEASE NOTE: Accessing services under these programs is not automatic. Eligibility and preapproval are required. Please feel free to call me to discuss further.

I look forward to hearing from you.
