Rates & Methods of Payment

Dr. O'Connor's hourly rate is $225.00 (last updated 2018) for individual, couples, and family therapy. Psychological services are not covered under the general BC Medical Plan, even with a Physician’s referral. However, most extended medical care plans (e.g., Blue Cross, Sunlife, Great West Life) do cover the services of a Registered Psychologist. Coverage usually renews each January. The amount of coverage varies considerably across different plans, and you should therefore contact your insurer directly to find out the extent of your coverage. You may also want to ask whether the amount is per family or per family member per calendar year. Payment is made to Dr. O'Connor at the end of each session and a formal receipt will be provided. You can then arrange reimbursement directly with your insurance provider.

Rates vary depending on the referral question. Feel free to contact Dr. O’Connor to discuss your assessment needs and she will be able to quote a rate.

Note that Psychological services (conducted by a Registered Psychologist) can also be claimed as a health care expense on your income tax.
