Psychological services are not covered by OHIP. Our fees are at or below the rate in the region (by also considering the rate suggested by the Ontario Psychological Association). Our services are reimbursed by extended health care insurance, similar to physical therapy or dental services. Whatever is not reimbursed by your insurance company is claimable as a tax deduction on your income tax as a medical expense.
