How does AbilitiCBT work?

  • It starts with a quick registration process - it will take no more than 10 minutes!
  • You will then be invited to download the mobile app. If you do not have a smart phone, we can arrange for you to have access to our online version that is accessible via your web browser.
  • Next, you will connect with one of our professional therapists to ensure the program is right for you– either by phone or video consultation.
  • You then move through 10 modules at your own pace – while the therapist tracks and monitors your progress
  • While you work through the modules, there will be check-in’s along the way with your therapist to make sure you’re getting the help you need. You can choose how you connect with your therapist: over the phone, via chat, or through a video check-in.

How much is AbilitiCBT and can I be reimbursed?

AbilitiCBT is $500 per program.

Submitting a claim for AbilitiCBT is much like any other benefit you claim through Great-West Life (Morneau Shepell benefit provider). You pay for the program upfront, and then get reimbursed through your benefit plan. You can claim AbilitiCBT under your paramedical coverage.

Your credit card will be charged $125 at 4 intervals within the program. No one at Morneau Shepell will have access to your credit card details.

With each payment, you will be provided with an invoice which can be used to get reimbursed.
