Are assessment services covered by Medicare?
No, when consulting with a psychologist in private practice, services are not covered by Medicare.
Will I be reimbursed by my private medical insurance company for these services?
Fees for consultation with a licensed member of the Ordre des psychologues du Québec are reimbursable by most major insurance companies. You should verify with your insurance carrier for the details of your coverage. Otherwise, the fee may qualify as a deduction for medical expenses on your income tax return.
What are the payment options?
The flat fee for the assessment is divided into instalments that are paid at each session by cash, cheque, or e-transfer.
