Different insurance plans offer different types and amounts of coverage.  It is important to check with your insurance company in advance, to find out what they will pay for.  For example, coverage may depend on the type of service that you are receiving, and the type of clinician that you are working with. Services that are delivered by a psychologist are covered by most extended health plans. You will be provided with a receipt that can be submitted to an insurer for reimbursement. When insurance plans provide only limited coverage, receipts may be tax deductible for any remainder.
