How Do I Make A Payment?
Payment is required at the beginning of each scheduled counselling session. The Door of Hope Counselling Clinic is able to accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and E-transfer.
Credit Card Payment: As a convenience to our clients, they can upload their Credit Card info to their encrypted Jane Account. Once the session starts, the payment is processed within their Jane Account and the paid receipt is emailed to the client's email in their Jane Account.
Interac E-Transfer: if paying by e-Transfer, please send the amount payable for your chosen session to firstname.lastname@example.org. No password is needed.
Your appointment time is reserved just for you. A late cancellation or missed visit leaves a hole in the therapists’ day that could have been filled by another client. As such, we require 24 hours' notice for any cancellations or changes to your appointment. Clients who provide less than 24 hours' notice, or miss their appointment, will be charged a cancelation fee equivalent to the session fee that has been booked.
ICBC Clients: If ICBC is paying for your sessions, and the session is canceled / rescheduled with less than 24 hours of your scheduled session, you will be charged the full amount of the booked session.
Many people have access to Healthcare Plans through their employers and have counselling coverage as part of their plan. You MAY be able to use these benefits to cover ALL or a PERCENTAGE of the costs of counselling. Please note that Healthcare Provider Plans differs dramatically from other Healthcare Plans. Moreover, even within a specific Healthcare Provider there will be many different types of coverage.
Before you book your first session with our Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and / or Master Practitioner in Clinical Counselling-Supervisor (MPCC-S), it is your responsibility to ensure that your Healthcare Plan includes coverage for counselling services provided by a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and / or Master Practitioner in Clinical Counselling-Supervisor (MPCC-S).
Moreover, ask your Healthcare Provider what type of coverage and the amount that they will cover. If your plan covers a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC), Master Practitioner in Clinical Counselling-Supervisor (MPCC-S) and / or Registered Professional Counsellor (RPC) counselling services, you will need to follow your Healthcare Provider's instructions for submitting a claim for reimbursement. The Door of Hope Counselling Clinic will provide you with a Paid Invoice upon payment that can be used to submit a claim to your Healthcare Provider.
