Do I have to pay for BRIA healthcare services?

Although the government does pay for some types of healthcare and mental health services, talk therapies and allied health services are not usually covered by the public/provincial healthcare system. Since BRIA offers many types of talk therapy, most of our services require direct payment. Specifically,  services by OT MSW, RSW, RP, RP(Q), NP, and RN providers are uninsured by the public health system. Each service at BRIA is billed individually. If you see an MD at BRIA, the time you spend with the MD is covered by the government and you will not be billed for this service. If you have any questions about whether a service is insured by the public system, or uninsured by the public system, please ask your Care Coordinator prior to starting care. If you have private health insurance, extended benefits, or a health spending account personally or through your employer, you will likely have coverage for many BRIA services. Please look into your benefits plan or coverage inclusions for more detailed information about which BRIA services are covered for you.
