Direct billing
& Counselling Fees

Therapy is an investment in yourself. You may want to explore options available to you, such as insurance and benefits coverage, to find a balance between resources and needs.

Individual, couples, Technology Assisted Counselling (TAC), and hypnotherapy sessions are $200/50 minute session.

To facilitate ease and accessibility of counselling, Sana Psychological is happy to offer direct billing with a number of insurance providers, including:

  • Alberta and Medavie Blue Cross
  • Great-West Life
  • Canada Life
  • Canadian Construction Workers Union (C.C.W.U.)
  • Chambers of Commerce Group Insurance Plan
  • CINUP
  • ClaimSecure
  • Co-operators
  • Cowan Insurance Group (managed by Express Scripts Canada)
  • Desjardins Insurance
  • Equitable Life
  • First Canadian
  • Greenshield
  • GroupHEALTH
  • Group Medical Services (GMS)
  • GroupSource
  • Industrial Alliance
  • Johnson Inc.
  • Johnston Group
  • LiUna Local 183
  • LiUna Local 506
  • Manion
  • Maximum Benefit
  • NexgenRx
  • Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB)
  • People Corporation
  • RWAM
  • SSQ
  • TELUS AdjudiCare
  • Union Benefits

Please be advised that Manulife and SunLife do not currently accept direct billing for psychological services. If you have your benefits plan through either of these companies, you will need to submit for reimbursement from them yourself. A receipt is provided after each session for submission to your insurance plan for reimbursement if you are unable to do direct billing. Many insurance plans cover a portion or all of the cost of a therapy session with a Registered Psychologist.

Did you know that therapy with a Registered Psychologist is an expense that you can claim on your tax return? Hang onto your receipts to include in your tax documents at the end of the taxation year.

The Psychologist’s Association of Alberta has a recommended fee schedule for Psychologists. The rates at Sana Psychological are consistent with this schedule.

Process

Call or text 403-917-0827 or e-mail sanapsyc@gmail.com for initial contact. You may have a number of questions that you would like Sana Psychological to answer. These can be asked via e-mail and/or a free 15 minute phone consultation can be arranged.
If you feel you already have your questions answered from reading the website and any additional online information, including Paige Abbott’s Psychology Today profile, our Instagram and Facebook feeds, then an appointment can be set up through e-mail or phone. Usually initial appointments can occur within a few days to a maximum wait time of two weeks depending on your schedule and availability.
Payment types accepted at this time are cash, e-transfer, credit cards, and direct billing.

We look forward to supporting you in doing different to be different.
