At the present time, there is no coverage for marriage and family therapy in private practice under the Ontario provincial hospital insurance plan.

However, psychotherapy is covered under many insurance plans and employee assistance plans. You will need to talk with your employer to determine the extent of your coverage. Your therapist will provide you with information regarding his or her credentialing and supervision structure to be given to your insurance company so that you can verify coverage..

It is your responsibility to find out from your employer the nature and extent of your coverage. Your insurer may require that you receive a doctor’s referral before you can receive benefits.
