I am an Approved Green Shield Provider and can submit claims on your behalf if you have Green Shield coverage. This means that you do not have to pay in advance and wait for reimbursement. Rather, you will attend sessions and I will submit claims for the services directly to your insurance provider.
Coverage for Psychotherapy:
If your coverage is for 'psychotherapy', you can ask your insurance provider about working with a Registered Social Worker who delivers psychotherapy services. The Controlled Act of Psychotherapy outlines that qualified Registered Social Workers have access to the title Psychotherapist and are legally designated to provide psychotherapy. I can provide you with my registration number to support any inquiries that you wish to make to your insurer.
Coverage for Psychology:
I have the benefit of working with a Consulting Psychologist. This means that whether your benefits cover Social Work or Psychology, I will be able to issue the appropriate receipt for service so that you can submit for reimbursement.
Social Work Fees in Downtown Toronto
Move Forward Counselling/Amy Babcock
All sessions are 50 minutes in length and the fee is $140 per session ($160 for couples and families). Once the session is complete, we will spend a few minutes checking in about how it went for you and scheduling our next appointment. Payment is due at the time of service and can be made by cash, credit card, or e-transfer. I require 24 hours notice for cancellations.
