During this difficult time there is even more need for the services of Psychologists. Many registered Psychologists in Nova Scotia are continuing to provide services to clients using telepsychology.
The March 24th NS government COVID-19 Update indicated that “…regulated health professions can only stay open for emergency or urgent cases or to provide virtual care, as long as they can meet social distancing requirements in their waiting room or other non-clinical areas and follow the cleaning protocol.” Also many insurers are altering their terms to allow payments for telepsychology services. We suggest that you contact your insurer to confirm this.
If you already see a Psychologist please contact them directly to discuss how they are changing to provide appropriate services.
