Extended Health Coverage

You may have extended health insurance that will subsidize our counseling and neurofeedback services. It is important that you check that your policy covers services provided by a Registered Clinical Counselor (RCC) or a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist (RMFT) to confirm subsidy. Some insurers will cover costs to see an intern or neurofeedback technician supervised by a Registered Clinical Counselor. Sojourn cannot make this determination so we recommend confirming this with insurance provider before an initial appointment. Please note that any balance remaining after the application of the subsidy is the responsibility of the client. Some of the insurance companies that subsidize our services include Desjardins, Pacific Blue Cross, Medavie Blue Cross (serving Veterans Affairs Canada, Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Canadian Armed Forces) , SunLife, Green Shield, Great West Life, and more.

ICBC Coverage
We see many clients suffering from the psychological affects of motor vehicle accidents. If you have been in an accident and you're experiencing symptoms of anxiety such as nervousness or fear, difficulty sleeping, intrusive thoughts, nightmares, and/or racing thoughts, or of depression such as low mood, low motivation, social withdrawal, foggy thinking, irritability and/or anger, it is important that you make an appointment for mental health services as soon after the accident as possible as this may impact your ICBC subsidy.

Crime Victims Assistance Program (CVAP)
Some of our therapists are approved to work with clients on the Crime Victims Assistance Program (CVAP) of BC. If you have been a victim of crime or are suffering as a result of witnessing a crime, please contact CVAP to apply for subsidy. Once approved, you will be granted subsidy for a number of counseling sessions with a CVAP therapist of your choosing. Please contact us to learn more and to set up your first appointment.
