How iCBT works

You and your dependents will be able to access these iCBT programs online or via an app that’s downloaded on a smartphone or tablet. Coverage for therapist-guided iCBT, whether through our partners or other providers, is covered through your psychology benefit.

Personalized therapy

You will receive one-on-one support from a registered therapist while following a structured, clinically effective approach that you can do on your own time, in your own way.

Private and secure

Your personal information and interactions with the therapist are completely confidential.

Practical and proactive

iCBT makes users aware of their negative thinking and prepares them to better cope with challenging situations as they arise.

How to claim

You will be billed in installments as you continue to access the program. Submit iCBT claims to Alberta Blue Cross® for reimbursement on our member site or app. You will be covered up to your plan’s annual and/or per visit maximum under your existing psychology benefit limits and you can claim the balance through your Health Spending Account if you have one as part of your benefits plan. Individuals will need to meet the minimum age requirement, which differs for each program, and undergo an assessment to determine whether they’re suited for iCBT.
