Extended Health Benefits
If you have extended health benefits through your work, or through an immediate family member’s employer, you may be covered for the services of a Registered Social Worker (RSW) or a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC). Some extended health plans cover
RSW’s and RCC’s while others do not. Please contact your benefit plan to find out if you are eligible to see a counsellor with those designations.
