What is a Psychologist?
A practicing psychologist is trained to assess and diagnose problems in thinking, feeling and behavior as well to help people overcome or manage these problems. A psychologist is uniquely trained to use psychological tests to help with assessment and diagnosis. Psychologists help people to overcome or manage their problems using a variety of treatments or psychotherapies. In Canada, the services provided by a psychologist are covered by provincial health insurance only if the psychologist is employed by, for example, a hospital, correctional facility, community clinic, social agency or school. The services provided by a psychologist in private practice are not covered by provincial health insurance plans and the psychologist bills the patient directly. Many people have extended health benefits through their employers that cover some amount of psychological service annually.
As of June. 19th 2012 the recommended rate for a Registered Psychologist in Alberta is $180 (for a 50 min session). Always check with your insurance provider if possible coverage is available.
