The fees are based on direct time with the client, as well as the preparation, documentation and administrative activities required to provide the service. Fees for additional clinical services are charged at the rate of $160/hr.  Additional fees apply for external written reports, completion of the “Speaking” and other portions of the Disability Tax Credit (T2201) application that a Speech-Language Pathologist may fill out, and for all activities beyond those required to provide direct service.  External written reports and other additional clinical services are only provided upon request.

We reserve the right to change fees at any time.  Existing clients will be given notice of any rate changes.

Cancellation and Billing Policy

The full session fee will be billed for no-shows and for sessions cancelled with less than 24 hours notice.  When we are provided with advance notice we can offer cancelled appointment times to other clients.  The fee will be waived in cases of emergency or inclement weather.

Payment Options

Fees for service are paid in advance or at the end of each therapy session. We accept Visa or MasterCard

Insurance Coverage

Our billing relationship is with you.  Once you have received and paid for the service, you may seek reimbursement from your insurance provider. We will issue a receipt(s) that you can submit to the insurance company.

Disability Tax Credit

You may be eligible for a Disability Tax Credit. We can complete the tax form but Canada Revenue Agency will determine your eligibility. If you are requesting completion of the DTC Form, please notify your Speech-Language Pathologist before your initial appointment to ensure that the appropriate information is gathered. See above for fee information.
