While social work is a regulated health profession, treatment by a registered social worker is not covered by OHIP. However, the majority of extended health benefits/insurance program cover clinical therapy. Please check your insurance coverage to see if you are eligible. Treatment provided by a Registered Social Worker has been recognized as income tax deductible medical expense by Revenue Canada.
Funding is available for forensic and/or sexological risk assessments through Ontario Legal Aid for eligible candidates.
