Compassionate Connections Therapeutic & Consulting Services 

What You Need to Know

Rates & Fee Structure

Therapeutic services are billed at the rate of $150.00 per therapy hour - 50 minute session, with 10 minutes devoted to chart review and progress notes.  Additional time and other services pertinent to your care are charged on a prorated basis. Examples of this include longer session times, report writing and attendance at meetings or school visits.  

Compassionate Connections does offer a limited number of appointments on a sliding fee scale. Please email [email protected] or call (902) 530-6565 for more information. Proof of income may be required. 

Insurance Coverage

Social work and therapeutic fees are not covered under Nova Scotia's MSI plan. Many private health care plans cover part, or a significant portion of therapeutic services. Please talk to your insurance provider directly to see what your specific plan covers. At this time Compassionate Connections does not offer direct billing to insurance companies; therefore, regardless of third-party coverage, payment is required in full prior to beginning of each session. We will provide you with a billing statement that you can submit to your insurance company.


Appointment times are reserved exclusively for you, and without sufficient notice we cannot provide that time to other individuals and families. If you need to cancel and appointment please provide a minimum of 24 hours notice either by phone (902) 530-6565 or email at [email protected] Appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will be charged the full session rate of the time reserved for you unless a medical note is presented. Whenever possible, please try to give at least one week's notice if you know you may not be able to make your appointment and we will be happy to provide you with another appointment time.
