As a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) and accredited mental health professional, the services of Bob Smiciklas at Family Life Counselling are recognized by many insurers. An official receipt is issued for each session, which you may submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.

You will need to verify with your insurance provider that your specific benefits plan includes coverage for the services of Family Life Counselling. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
  • Does my plan cover counselling services by a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) in Ontario or by a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC)?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year does my plan cover?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

We will be pleased to assist you with any paperwork specific to your policy or provider.
