Extended Health Benefits: The vast majority of extended benefits plans (ie. Sun Life, Blue Cross, DesJardins, Canada Life, Manulife, etc.) cover some or all costs associated with individual counselling sessions provided by an RCC. If you intend to seek reimbursement for the cost of sessions under a group plan, please check with your employer to ensure the coverage criteria includes RCCs.
If your plan does not cover RCCs but does cover Psychologists, Social Workers, and/or Counsellors with other designations, you can make a request to your employer through the Human Resources Department to adjust the plan to include RCC designation. Many employers are not aware that making this change is easy and can be done at no extra cost to them. Click here to download a template to help with this. Receipts are issued via email and may be needed for health plan reimbursement or as a medical expense toward your personal income tax.
