DR. JOHNSON'S PROFESSIONAL FEES are set in accordance with the fee schedule provided by the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta. Sessions are charged at a rate of $170 per hour. As the final 10 minutes of any session is reserved for documentation and review, the actual contact time of any session will be 10 minutes less than the nominal length (i.e. 1 hour session = 50 minutes, 1.5 hour session = 80 minutes, etc.).
Individual psychological services are exempt from GST. In Alberta, under the Income Tax Act, the services of a Registered Psychologist may be claimed as a medical expense.
Employee Assistance Programs or extended health care plans may cover part or all of the cost. It is the client’s responsibility to check into his/her insurance plan to gather information on coverage. While you are responsible for the fee at the time of the session, I provide an official receipt with my registration number, which you may submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
Appointments can be changed or cancelled with 24 hours advance notice. If I am unable to schedule around a cancellation made outside this policy, an invoice will be issued for the missed session.
