HEALTH PLAN (EAP)

In Nova Scotia, about 60,000 employees and their dependents have access to sessions with a counselling therapist under their workplace benefit plan. All major national insurers recognize RCTs. Many employers’, organizations’, and unions’ benefit plans include private practice RCTs as approved practitioners. 16,000 First Nation band members can access sessions with a counselling therapist under the First Nations and Inuit Health Benefit. If you have a health plan (EAP) please ensure you contact your private insurance provider directly to determine what your plan covers and the inclusion of services by a Registered Counseling Therapist (RCT) . You can access my services through First Nations and Inuit Health Benefits, Workman’s Compensation Board, Morneau Shepell, Medavie Blue Cross, and Humanacare. Pre-approval is necessary prior to starting sessions.
