Rates & Funding Options
What are Dr. Kwee’s Rates?
The rates vary based on the service provided:
Psychotherapy rates are $175 for a 50 minute session; longer sessions are prorated accordingly. While psychologist fees are not covered by MSP, they are tax deductible.
The current cost of a psychoeducational assessment is $2,398.00. This is benchmarked to 18 hours of clinical time which includes the clinical interview, all face-to-face testing, scoring, interpretation, report writing, and the feedback session. Regardless of case complexity, the cost of a psych-ed assessment is capped at $2,398.
There is no fixed rate for a psychological assessment as the actual cost depends on the purpose of the assessment, the tests to be administered, and the length of the assessment. Please inquire further with Dr. Kwee.
What third party payer options are available to help pay for my services?
Most individuals fund a portion of their therapy or testing through some form of extended health insurance. Check with your plan to determine whether it covers the services of a Registered Psychologist, and what your coverage is. Typically, payment is made directly to me and I provide a receipt that you can then submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
If you are a crime victim, the Crime Victims Assistance Program may pay for your services. I am an approved psychological services provider of this program. If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, you may also be able to obtain funding through ICBC.
For certain types of workers, funding for the services of a Registered Psychologist may be available through their unions.
Finally, workers on disability may have access to psychotherapy through their disability management companies. However, a separate referral is usually required.
If I do not have access to third party payer funding and cannot afford psychotherapy, do you have a sliding scale?
Yes, a limited sliding scale is available. Please inquire with Dr. Kwee.
