How to Pay for Therapy Services

There are many ways to cover the cost of private therapy services offered by 1to1 Therapy Services. Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Psychology services are covered by most extended health benefits.

Each new client is assigned to a dedicated Care Coordinator to discuss funding options and referrals to government funded programs. 1to1 works in collaboration with various funding partners to help your family access therapy without waiting lists. Our Care Coordinators are knowledgeable and can assist with extended health benefits, completing funding applications and providing letters of support or quotes for government funded programs.

Private Insurance:

Private therapy is covered under most private insurance and extended benefits plans. Private insurance for therapy operates in the same manner as dental or drug benefits. Please contact your insurance provider to determine coverage specific to your plan. Be sure to inquire about “Parent Training” coverage. Parents are trained during therapy sessions in order to acquire skills that can be utilized outside of therapy.
