Robin Cann MSW, RSW is registered by the Nova Scotia College of Social Workers as a Private Practice Social Worker. Under our current health system, fees for private practice social work services are not covered by MSI. However, many insurance plans (such as those you might have through your employer or school) do cover the services of social workers. If your insurance plan covers services by psychologists or massage therapists, you probably also have coverage for a social worker; but please check with your insurance provider to be certain.
I am happy to share that direct billing is available to Blue Cross and Greenshield. Signed receipts will be provided to those who have insurance plans that I am unable to bill directly, so that you can be reimbursed according to your plan.
It is also important to note that you can claim out-of-pocket therapy costs under the Medical Expense Tax Credit.
The current hourly rate is $150 per therapy hour (50 minute individual session). Rates for group or family sessions may differ depending on the program being offered. Sliding scale rates are available to those in need.
Forms of Payment Accepted
Payments can be in the form of email money transfer (e-transfer) or cash. Direct billing is available for Blue Cross and Green Shield insurance providers.
