Private practice psychologists are not covered under the provincial health plan and many people choose to pay out-of-pocket to see one.  However, there often is some coverage for psychotherapy and/or assessment with a psychologist as part of extended health benefits plans.

Psychologists are not obligated to charge any set fee for services.  However, The Manitoba Psychological Society does recommend fees for psychological services (see Recommended Fees).  These recommendations are made based on current psychologist fees in other provinces as well as on consumer price index changes.

Access to psychologists for children and youth in the public health care system is often available through referrals to Clinical Health Psychology, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, or paediatric specialty programs, both at Health Science Centre (HSC) and the Manitoba Adolescent Treatment Centre (MATC),  and at some primary health clinics, Access Centres, and shared care sites. Psychologists also provide services in the public education system, and referrals may be made through the local school.
