INSURANCE/THIRD PARTY COVERAGE
If you are covered by an employer extended medical/health benefits plan, you may be covered for counselling. Many plans provide funding for a certain amount of counselling sessions or dollar amount. For more information, please refer to your company insurance plan. If you are paying for counselling with your own funds, counselling sessions through Lydia Mazzuto Professional Counselling Services can be claimed on your income tax as a medical expense. Since September 26, 2012, counselling provided by a Registered Social Worker (RSW) has been a claimable medical tax deduction.
For more information, please refer to the Canada Revenue Agency website’s authorized medical practitioners for the purposes of claiming medical expenses.
*The full rate will apply for any cancelled or missed appointments less than 24 hours before scheduled appointment.
$100--$110 per 50 minute session.
**As a long time labour and social justice advocate with a commitment to accessible, quality mental health services, I provide free and subsidized spaces for students, seniors, individuals and families experiencing unemployment, underemployment or are otherwise unable to pay for services. Please contact Lydia to discuss further.
