How many counselling sessions are clients entitled to once prior approval is received?

The IFHP will initially approve up to 10 one-hour sessions, not including the initial assessment. If more treatment is needed, providers can submit a request to the IFHP. It must be accompanied by a physician’s recommendation for more sessions. A discharge summary report must be submitted to both the referring physician and IFHP once treatment is completed.

The IFHP does not cover group psychotherapy sessions or the following services:

  • Psychoanalysis
  • Psycho-educational assessments
  • Life skills training
  • Expressive arts therapy
  • Hypnotherapy
  • Sex therapy
