As private practitioners, we operate primarily on a fee-for-service basis. Funding may be available through various insurance or other funding sources, including ICBC, Non-Insured Health Benefits (First Nations and Inuit Health), Okanagan Indian Band, Spallumcheen Band, WorkSafe BC, Blue Cross, Veteran’s Affairs, RCMP Health Services and Employee Assistance Programs. Whenever possible, we will assist you in accessing available funding.
Funding for services provided by registered psychologists is available through most extended health plans. Psychologists and other therapists are not covered through basic B.C. Medical Plan.
Fees are as follows:
For private clients who receive services from Dr. Patricia Neilson, fees are $190.00 per hour.
For private clients who receive services from Doug Egan, fees are $100.00 per hour.
Fees are due and payable at the time of the appointment. There is a charge of half the regular session fee for failure to show up for a scheduled appointment, or failure to cancel within 24 hours. The circumstances behind the late cancellation will be considered.
Fees may be paid by cash, cheque or E-transfer. We do not have any debit or credit card processing capabilities, so are unable to accept any credit cards or debit cards. Invoicing and rates may be negotiated.
