I do not provide third party billing to health care providers. I do however, provide an invoice and receipt to be submitted for reimbursement. Counselling services are covered by some extended benefits plans.
The best way to determine this is to call your insurance provider and ask if they cover the services of a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC)
