Fees and Payment Options
The rate for psychological services is set according to standards in Ontario. The rate for a psychological treatment session is $190 per 50 minutes (the remaining 10 minutes of the hour reserved for payment and scheduling)*. Dr. Sinclair does not offer a sliding scale as she provides pro bono services in some cases. There is no sales tax on psychological services. Payment is due at the time of services.
Many extended health care plans offer coverage for psychological services provided by a Registered Psychologist. Each individual health plan is unique, therefore it is recommended that you consult with your health plan to determine what may be covered. Psychological services may also be claimed for tax purposes. When it is not possible to bill health insurance companies directly, payment is due at the time of services.
