While Sleep Coaching and Sleep Consulting services are not normally reimbursed, we do have some options that may be covered by your health insurance through our partnership with Early Roots Nutrition. As part of this partnership, we collaborated on a unique package designed to help your family get better sleep and support your health.
Are you covered?
You will likely find that you have coverage if you are in Canada and either have a flex plan or you have coverage for "Registered Holistic Nutritionist." We have worked with a number of Ontario school teachers that have been able to get reimbursed for our sleep coaching services through this partnership.
If your insurance covers Nutritionist and there is confusion about Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN), you might be able to share this article for clarification: Dietitian vs. Nutritionist vs. Holistic Nutritionist
If you do not have health insurance coverage, our regular KinderSleep Services provide excellent value.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or need more details.
