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:
- Psycho-educational assessments
- Life skills training
- Expressive arts therapy
- Sex therapy
