Extended health benefits

Counselling Services for Waterloo Region

 
 

Many insurance plans will offer some type of coverage for counselling. You can check your extended plan to see if there is any mention of counselling being covered by an RSW (Registered Social Worker) or by a professional who holds an MSW (Master of Social Work). Sometimes this information is actually located under "Psychologists," so you may have to do a little digging or call the company directly. 

The insurance company might ask for verification that a counsellor is registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSSSW), which is information that can be located here
