Dr. Agatha Beschell
Based on Psychologists' Association of Alberta guidelines, the fee is $200 for a 50-minute session. GST is not charged.
I offer direct billing to many insurance companies including Alberta Blue Cross, the Alberta School Employee Benefit Plan, Canada Life, Desjardins, Industrial Alliance, Equitable Life, and a few others (please inquire). Benefits plans vary in terms of coverage for psychology services, so please check with your plan administrator regarding your coverage amount.
If you don't have a benefits plan (or if it doesn't cover the full fee), payment can be made by cash, cheque, or e-transfer (please note, no credit/debit cards). For e-transfers, please set this up in your bank app before your appointment; the email is [email protected] and you can pick a random password as my account is set up for auto-deposit. PLEASE NOTE THAT FOR PHONE OR VIDEO SESSIONS, the only accepted forms of payment are direct billing to insurance and e-transfer.
A 15-minute phone consultation is available for free to new clients to assess compatibility, and to answer any questions you may have before booking the first appointment. Please contact me if this is something you're interested in.
