INSURANCE INFORMATION - Psychotherapy
Services offered at Mindful Maelstrom Wellness Clinic are not covered by OHIP. However, services may be covered by private extended health benefit plans. It is important to note the difference between a Psychologist and Psychotherapist and how this may affect your coverage. Please check your benefits before booking to confirm your coverage as Mindful Maelstrom, our clinicians and staff are not responsible should your sessions be rejected by your provider. This is specifically important for psychotherapy, as plans vary widely. Invoices will be sent to you upon payment by email to be remitted to your provider for reimbursement. We are currently only able to direct bill for our Psychologist, but not for our Psychotherapists.
Direct billing is available for Registered Massage Therapy, Acupuncture, Naturopathic Medicine and Psychology for the following insurance providers: Canada Life, Manulife, Sun Life, LiUNA Local 183, Chamber of Commerce, Industrial Alliance and Green Shield. Please provide your insurance card before your appointment. You will be responsible for any outstanding, rejected or co-pay amounts. Unfortunately we are not able to direct bill for other modalities at this time.
SLIDING SCALE / REDUCED RATES
Our Psychotherapists each hold a limited number of spots for existing clients who are uninsured and unable to pay the full session fee due to unexpected financial hardship. A rate reduction application form must be completed with proof of limited income. Periodically, your ability to pay will be re-evaluated. This is to ensure these spots open up for others in need.
For new or existing clients looking to access support but are experiencing financial hardship, we offer our Affordable Therapy program on Fridays. For more information, please click HERE.
Payment is due at the time of your visit. Accepted methods of payment are credit card, Interac debit or e-transfer. Non-payment or a history of late cancellations or no-shows may require the clinic to collect a deposit or credit card number to be kept on file for future bookings. Outstanding invoices must be paid prior to subsequent visits.
Mindful Maelstrom requires a minimum of 24 hours to cancel or reschedule an appointment. If you are unable to provide sufficient notice or if your appointment is missed, the full appointment fee will be applied. You may cancel or reschedule your appointment by phone or email during business hours, or through your online account until 24 hours in advance. Cancellation fees are not covered by private insurance.
We understand that circumstances can arise that are outside your control. To be fair to other clients who were not able to book in your reserved time, and to our practitioners who have held this time for you, we apply our cancellation policy automatically and without bias.
