What is direct billing?
An arrangement between the health insurance provider and healthcare provider, where the healthcare provider directly bills the client’s insurance company. Therefore, at no cost to you. However, there might be a small portion, some clients pay as a result of your individual insurance plan.
Unfortunately, not all third-party insurance allows direct billing, however, more insurance companies are allowing mental health professionals to direct bill. In the meantime, the insurance companies that allow social workers to direct bill are Greenshield Canada, People Corporation, The Cooperators, Canada Life and Telus Health.
